I love this barren landscape. It’s fascinating and remote. When I took these shots, I was a lot younger. Think pre-age related disability. I traveled by VWBus. My kids now wish we had held onto it, but camping in the thing was frigid. All weekend, the dog and I froze. When I came across the hot springs, I realized it was probably my only shot of getting warm for the weekend. This trip flowed between the Steens Mountains, the Alvord Desert, and the Wallowas.
