Alvord Desert Passing Storm


A summer storm passes over the expansive white plain of the Alvord Desert.

SKU: AlvordDesertPassingStorm Categories: ,


The Alvord Desert, a playa lake, sits tucked in the rainshadow of the Steens Mountain in Southeast Oregon. A playa lake is formed when rainwater fills shallow depressions in the landscape, leaving behind salt minerals as it evaporates. In the Alvord Desert, this creates a stunning white plain, stretching beneath expansive blue skies to the distant mountains. 

This is a favorite location for stargazers, campers who love remote areas, and, occasionally, folks trying to set world land speed records.
