Actually, org is quite smart in this respect.  if you enter a time stamp
and then ask to enter another, org automatically inserts the -- between
the two time stamps.  E.g. try this key sequence to get a time range
that covers 7 days starting today:

  C-c . RET C-c . +6 RET

and you should get: <2015-08-27 Thu>--<2015-09-02 Wed>
