The Klickitat is a fine summer steelhead river in the eastern end of the Columbia River Gorge.
An area along the western bank of the Klickitat, now owned by the U. S. Forest Service, once belonged to England’s Lord Balfour.
There is a small creek on the property which forms a canyon where salmon spawn. The spawned-out salmon carcasses are viewed by the eagles as a fine winter dining opportunity. On this day in late February, there were several immature bald eagles in the vicinity.
I visited the area on a very windy, but spring-like day. There were many LBJs to be seen (Audubon speak for little brown jobbers – – – hard to identify, small birds).
To my surprise, there were a couple of wildflowers in bloom. By the end of March there will be many a colorful wildflower to be seen.
