Ride: High Desert Roaming

The Great Basin.

Oregon's high desert landscapes seem to go on and on forever.

I met up with Pete to follow along while he tested some new prototype Mosko Moto gear.

Starting in White Salmon, the home of the Mosko Moto HQ, we headed south and passed right by Mt Hood. Our plan was to stage out of the Prineville area, but early into our roadtrip, we were surprised to find snow coming down heavily.

To kill some time and to get to better weather, we made a decision to push on to Summer Lake Hot Springs. Booked a cabin for the the night, and planned to get up and ride first thing the next morning.

As we traveled through the middle of nowhere, we experienced wide open spaces, canyon walls, a whole lot of wild horses, and pronghorn.

As we passed Mt Hood on the way back, we caught the awesome alpenglow.
