Here Is The Most Remote, Isolated Spot In Oregon And It’s Positively Breathtaking

Located deep in the wilderness of southeastern Oregon, the Alvord Desert is a true hidden gem. It’s unlike anywhere else in the state; rimmed by the stunning, snow-capped Steens Mountain, this expansive playa will make you feel as though you’ve been transported to another planet entirely. Chances are, you’ll be totally alone here—and the catch is that it’s not even hard to get to.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
