Oh how I love Steens Mountain. 🤗 It's so fascinating. Did you know that while Steens Mountain looks to be a mountain range, it's actually just one mega-mountain? Before it was a mountain, it was also a location where the Earth's crust opened up and spewed out layers and layers of lava, contributing to the Columbia River basalt floods. If you look closely you can see the layers in this photo.
