Steens Mountain Snowfall Canvas Posters

Steens Mountain Snowfall Canvas Posters Steens Mountain is in the southeastern part of the U.S. state of Oregon, and is a large fault-block mountain. Located in Harney County, it stretches some 50 miles (80 km) north to south, and rises from alongside the Alvord Desert at elevation of about 4,200 feet (1,300 m) to a summit elevation of 9,733 feet. It is sometimes confused with a mountain range but is properly a single mountain. The Steens Mountain Wilderness encompasses 170,166 acres (68,864 ha) of Steens Mountain. 98,859 acres of the Wilderness are protected from grazing and free of cattle. The mountain was called the "Snowy Mountains" by John Work, one of the fur traders who were the first Europeans in the area. It was renamed in 1860 for United States Army Major Enoch Steen, who fought and drove members of the Paiute tribe off the mountain. The act was created by local landowners in cooperation with local and national government representatives in response to a proposed National Monument. This act created the Steens Mountain BLM Cooperative Management and Protection Area, a 425,000-acre area. This law protects 1,200,000 acres from mining, and 100,000 acres from cattle grazing. Steens Mountain is traversed by a 52-mile (84 km) loop road, most of which is suitable for passenger vehicles. This road is the highest road in Oregon state. It is possible to drive to the summit of the mountain and to other viewpoints such as the Kiger Gorge. Steens Mountain is also host to Steens Mountain Running Camp, a nationally known cross country training camp that has been held on the mountain since 1975.
