Desert Trail
In this photo taken Sept. 17, 2012, a Steens Mountain thistle, dried out at the end of the season, glistens in the morning sun near the top of Steens Mountain in Oregon. The Oregon Desert Trail will be 750 miles long, a nonmotorized route for hikers, horseback riders and, in part, for cyclists. A mapped trail, with water holes, campsites and waypoints identified, will entice more visitors to learn about, to enjoy and to care for this expansive part of the state.
