The pungent smell of sagebrush brought a smile to my face, and conjured up many memories of my youth.
Cottonwood Canyon sits in a deep canyon of the John Day River, one of our nation’s longest free-flowing rivers.
The park has 8,000-plus acres for hiking, fishing and exploring the interesting landscape.
A breathtaking hike through Cottonwood Canyon, John. I appreciate your meticulous work on identification (it can be daunting), and your photos are such a pleasure. I loved this spring bonanza.
Thanks much. Knowing the names of wildflowers, butterflies and such adds a lot to any outdoor adventure.
