We got gate keys to the Steens gate above Page Springs at the BLM in
Burns. Mom and Sarah drove us up until the road was covered in snow.
Starting at around 9 AM we all hiked for a few miles through patchy
snow, finally Mom and Sarah went back and Dad and I headed for Jackman
Park. We arrived at camp at around 3:30 PM, set up camp and then
headed up to Blitzen Gorge (the nearest big one anyway). The next day
we skied up to the summit, we made it back to camp after full darkness
had fallen. On the third day we went up to Keiger Gorge, then back in
camp we had lunch, and then spent a very enjoyable couple hours skiing
up and down the hills above our camp, I could have done that all day.
On the fourth day we broke camp around 9 AM and were back on dirt road
by 1:30 PM.
