In far Southeast Oregon's Steens mountains there is a feral horse with striped legs as well, the Kiger Mustang. Years ago we were up on the Steens on September 1st. It snowed about 18", and force us to abandon the trip. Down at the camp we had torrential rain, which swamped out the camp, soaked everything, and left us cold, and wet. We made one last chance to drive the loop, but the snow was too deep, and it was snowing too hard with visibility at less than 50'. As the cliff walls are not fenced, it would have been easy to drive off one, so we chose safety over foolishness, and abandon the trek.
One of the beautiful unknown spots in America, one of myriad.
View from the Alford desert looking up to the Steens range. It tops out at 9,500'.
And another looking from the Steens out outwards the Alford desert.
Standing at the edge of the Steens always reminds me of the ending scene in The God's Must be Crazy. There is a sense that you are standing at the edge of the world. The edge of the world scene occurs about 2 minutes into the video, but the rest is interesting as well.
