Steens – Hanging Clothes
Steens is a remarkable area in Southeastern Oregon where I go to fly my model airplanes on the playa. At the north end of the Alford Desert just east of Steens Mountain is a natural hot springs on a ranch. It has a corrugated half shed around it and people usually soak in the buff with a view that extends for miles. There are some rusted nails where you can hang your clothes. One time when I was there, there was a shapely young lady and her husband who invited me in the pool with them. I remember it well and this painting commemorates it !
