The following pictures are from two full days of hiking in the Cowiche Canyon, outside of Yakima, Washington. This post concentrates on the outstanding beauty of this shrub-steppe habitat and its distinct plant-life and geology. Bill and I will return to the region for a botanist/ecologist guided hike in a few weeks, and I will post detailed plant info and more pictures at that time. Until then, this will give you an idea of the wide variety of plant life in the Canyon.
At the end of this post, I will include a link to the CC website.

I wish you colorful trails, clear skies, and beauty to surround you.
And to my frequent viewers of this particular post, I welcome your comments! I’d love to hear your thoughts about this area.
