The Alvord Desert lies in the SW corner of Oregon.
This Alvord Salt Lake is only a few muddy feet deep. There are hot springs seeps and some bath houses in the marshes pictured above.
The lake is surrounded by a larger dry lake bed that stretches 25 miles running north-south. Additional geothermal features can be found on either end.
This picture is taken from the foothills of the Steins Mountains. They run along the west side of the desert and rise up to 10,000 feet.
