Outdoors Desert Trail
In this photo taken Sept. 16, 2012 a rattlesnake moves across a bulldozed road, from the side of the road that was burned to the unburned side, after the Holloway Fire scorched much of the Trout Creek Mountains of southeast Oregon this summer. 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.
