The Steens

Last weekend we took a whirlwind trip to the Steens Mountains in eastern Oregon. It was intended to be a camping trip, but Daddy didn't get everything ready in time so we took a day trip instead. The Steens is a 9,000+' mountain "range" near Burns, OR.

We saw some pronghorn in the refuge on the way there, and the wildflowers were really cool.

Then stopped at the famous French Glen Hotel for lunch.

Views from Steens Mountain and the boys:

And some crazy flower seed pods and a grasshopper:

The window to visit the Steens is only a couple of months in the summer (it was snowed in completely in June!), so we took this quick trip but hope to do a longer one next year!
