This rugged region, on the western flank of the northern Rocky Mountains, was sculpted by great ice sheets that melted away at the end of the last ice age, some 10,000 to 15,000 years ago. The heavily forested and remote terrain, which is affected by both coastal and Rocky Mountain climates, belies the notion that Washington east of the Cascades is only semiarid steppe. On good dirt-and-gravel roads. Watch for logging trucks and fallen snags (dead trees). Not all of the road numbers you will encounter are on maps of the area.
