Not fare from the big wild fire near the "Burns District". Believe me is was not a small one.
We are at a sight that is a haven for birding. The Donner Und Blitzen River is right behind our campsite, lunch will be served , fishing is good in the river.. The Harney Lake and Malheur Lake are not far. Plus the historic "Sod House Ranch" are in the area also.
The site is near Steens Mountain. There are several foot trails, fishing is very near, wild life viewing is good, bike riding is a no-no. There are some 10 trails for hiking, horse trails and a 40 mile auto route.

We need to finish setting up our camp, as we are staying a few extra days. It has tuned out to be a fine birding site.
