Great report, pics, and the ride itself. My brother-in-law worked cattle in some of those areas and once told me to only camp at the highest point around the Steens where the wind was always blowing those mosquitoes away. From the sounds of it, I guess he was right.
I was in Moro, OR this past weekend, but alas bikeless (and had no time anyway). For sure another time. Hi Bacon
Thanks again guys,
