South-central Washington's Klickitat River boasts dramatic scenery. Steep columnar basalt cliffs line the upper river in many places, and chunks of basalt have fallen into the river form the walls. Wildflowers grow everywhere from spring through midsummer. Brush and deciduous trees line the entire length of river, presenting difficult hazards. Keep to river center to avoid getting tangled in debris, and hug the inside bends to check for logs.
