Quiet little campground with full hookups on hillside at the western foot of the Steens. great place, if you want electricity, to camp when visiting the Steens Mountains.

After a quick dinner it was a weary traveller off to sleep.

Anyway, after tidying up stuff at Kim's, we left and stayed at Yakima Nation RV in Toppenish, where we've stayed a gajillion times before, then to Pendleton, Oregon where we've stayed a billion gajillion times, but then the open road toward souther Idaho, and eastern Nevada.
