This day was a road trip day for my husband and I…which doesn’t happen very often. We drove the loop from Princeton to Frenchglen and on through Catlow Valley to Fields where we visited friends. The trip back was along the east base of Steens Mountain along the Alvord Desert and back to Princeton.
Total miles was about 190, and I estimate that we met fewer than a dozen other vehicles…they don’t call this the “Big Empty” for nothing! The huge sagebrush sea was all around us the whole trip with wildlife and cows…lots of cows!

It was a beautiful day for an outing…we need to do it more often!
