Cow Lakes is a nice BLM campground with a little elevation that is an easy 20-minute drive from DN12 to the south, and not far from the DN02-03-02-13 grid corner. This is a beautiful oasis in the desert but, as with most lakes, it's not a really high point. There are lots of birds and wildlife and fish and a rough boat ramp at this good-sized lake. The Lower Cow Lake was dry when we visited in Sept 2015.

Restrictions: No water.

Thomas Creek Ridge is just a few miles north of Jordan Valley and offers an excellent view in all directions. There's a concrete base leftover from some small previous communications building, and we found some of the original guy wire anchors. Just like the sign says, "Caution: Cattle Guards."

Driving directions: Go north from Jordan Valley, OR. Turn left into the gravel pit and turn left again onto the first dirt road leading up into the hills.

This is identified as SOTA peak W7O/SE-179, an unnamed ridge above Poison Springs in Eastern Oregon, and there appears to be a visible track to the top.

As of Oct 2014, it has not been activated for SOTA.
