Outdoors Desert Trail
In this photo taken Sept. 16, 2012, an irrigated crop circle in the Alvord Desert can be seen in the distance as a mountain cliff in the foreground is lit by the evening sun 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.
