It's desert, yes- but not the Lawrence of Arabia kind. This landscape of sagebrush and rimrock canyons in central and eastern Washington is uniquely beautiful and rich in plant and animal life. It offers mild temperatures in fall, prime wildlife viewing in winter, and an explosion of wildflowers in spring. Some of these hikes follow designated trails; others guide you along the contours of the land fro a more individual experience.
