The Alvord Desert is in southeastern Oregon and is a spectacular spot to spend some time in. Mostly on BLM, the Alvord Playa is the highlight, but it’s far from the only thing there. With plenty roads to explore, hiking to experience, and hot springs to soak in, we’ve been several times – and I’m sure we’ll be back again.
Note: The Alvord Desert is a very remote area, plan accordingly. Know where you can get fuel and water, and carry extra. If you are travelling alone, be extremely cautious – if you get stuck out here, it could be many days before someone else comes along to help.
