Remember reading this story about Sage Clegg, the Bend hiker who was taking on the 750-mile Oregon Desert Trail? She's now more than a week into her trip (just passed through Paisley). Don't forget to follow her via her photo blog at onda.org.
Clegg is the first to tackle the long-distance trail that was conceived of by ONDA (Oregon Natural Desert Association). The 33-year-old has already hiked the AT, PCT, and CDT and is using this trip to help ONDA identify water sources and gaps that may/may not exist in the ODT trail map. The trail runs from the Bandlands of Central Oregon to the Owyhee Canyonlands in Southeastern Oregon.
