Geo 730: Feb. 19, Day 415: Hart Mountain in Motion

This was taken on the fly, as you can tell from the motion blur in the foreground. This is a bit past Adel, I think, but before the irrigation ditch that crosses the road, which is where we stopped to take in the view for a few minutes.

There's just so much to say about this area. Some of Oregon's grandest landscapes, yet so little visited, known, or appreciated. So much more water than "Basin and Range" generally brings to mind, yet starkly arid, overall. So much geology!

I'll leave it at that, for now.
