Diamond Craters is said to have the best and most diverse basaltic volcanic features in the U.S." Enjoy the area for its remoteness. The surrounding sage and rock desert is stark, but beautiful. The view to the south is filled by broad-shouldered, mile-high Steens Mt. This high desert ride is in Diamond Craters Natural Area, about 55 miles southeast of Burns.
