Alvord Desert
Alvord Desert im Sonnenuntergang

Die Alvord Desert ist eine Wüste im südöstlichen Teil des US-Bundesstaates Oregon. Sie liegt südöstlich des Steens Mountains. Sie liegt auf einem trockenen Seebett. Unter den dort herrschenden widrigen Bedingungen ist sowohl für Tiere als auch für Pflanzen ein Überleben kaum möglich. Im Jahr regnet es durchschnittlich nur etwa 180 mm. Drei Gebirge trennen sie vom Pazifischen Ozean. Dies sind der Steens Mountain, die Kaskadenkette und die Oregon Coast Range, in deren Regenschatten sie sich befindet.
