On the map it appears vast and empty. But we plan to explore it soon for the first time.
Have you ever been to Basque Station, Juntura, Jordan Valley, Steens Mtn, Hart Mtn National Antelope Refuge, Christmas Valley, Paisley, Adel ("last of the big remudas"), Frenchglen, Crane, Malheur Lake, Donner und Blitzen River (!??), Owyhee Canyon Overlook? What can you tell me about these places?
This probably sounds like an ignorant question, but can you get gas out there? What about a motel room? Where?? Can you recommend a route, places to visit, things to avoid?
The plan right now is to go through LaPine to Lakeview. A couple of days later we will stop in Nyssa, then lesser roads through Malheur National Forest to Redmond and home to Salem. It's the part between Lakeview and Nyssa that is the BIG question mark. Any suggestions?
This will be a top-down tour in the Miata, hoping never to go over 55. Two years ago we took 4 days to take in the Olympic Peninsula and coast, with plenty of stops for short walks, meals, etc. That's the general plan again.
Any ideas or advice would be very welcome.
