Ray-Bursting a Gorge-ous Sunset on Steens

Steens Mountain National Back Country Byway opens up a world of views truly unique to SE Oregon. Besides one of the darkest night skies in the lower 48, Steens also plays host to several plant species that occur nowhere else on Earth (endemics) and serves as an example of one of the largest fault-block mountains in the world (one mountain over 50 mi long!). Yet very few even know this place exists.
