22 September 2102 – Rowena Plateau to Deschutes River

One of my favorite places in Oregon is the Oak – Pine woodlands stretching from the Columbia River around Hood River south along the eastern flanks of the Cascades.

So, i headed out for the last wildflowers of the year.  The fires had the sun rising in a deep orange-red but i was still on I84 so i didn’t get any photos.  I pulled off at Mosier and drove the old Gorge Hwy to the Dalles and then over to Heritage Landing.  And this is what i found:


Level IV: Oak/Conifer Foothills (9c)
Level IV:  Deschutes/John Day Canyons (10k)
