This piece is based on a wilderness study area in the areas of Steens Mountain southeastern Oregon. The particular site of this photograph depicts the remnants of a homestead from the heyday of dryland farming. All that remains is evidence of the root cellar and some trees that are not native to the geographic region of this site. Many of the named plants have disappeared from this location and others like where at one time they were abundant.
