Oh what a place. Many of us in Oregon know of the Steens Mountain, not just because it's America's tallest-of-it's-kind fault-scarp mountain. Or, be it for the long ice-age glacier-carved canyons charged with the largest aspen groves in the state. But no, it's the famed Mule Deer.
Three weeks into September and we finally have some precipitation---not much, mind you, but enough to form a puddle or two. I’ll take it since it is the first perceptible amount of rainfall since opening day of archery elk season.
