Steens Mountain & The Lake Alvord Playa

001

This shot from the top of Steens Mountain shows the Playa in the distance.  It’s 7miles across and 12 miles long. This is where we run our Things with our new improvements and changes to our engines. This is where we can test new ideas as to how to have longevity as well as mild performance.

AUGUST2014_5   Larry Green running straight and fast (for a Thing)!  About 1 mile out.

 

AUGUST2014_6The surface wasn’t as hard as we like.  There had been some rain in recent days which made the surface slower for our runs.
