This episode was shot in March 2018, when the duo visited Oregon’s Cascade Mountain Range and Alvord Desert – two unique and incredibly different locations with just a few hours of driving between them.
Jack told us:
It was definitely a memorable trip as we arrived at the desert at the same time a huge storm was hitting. It was a little challenging and stressful, but it created some really unique conditions.
Bottom line: Video of stargazing locations in Oregon’s Cascade Mountains and the Alvord Desert.
