As in many regions in the Columbia Basin, this one is more of a ramble than a true hike with a beginning, middle, and end. Maybe we are more goal-oriented on the western side of the Cascades; if you must set a “goal” for this ramble, aim for the White Bluffs above Hanford Reach, approximately 3 miles from the start point. My first visit was in late April, a bit early for most of the flowers, but signs of spring were already in the air and there was warmth in the sun. This is a fabulous area to explore, with wildlife refuges, points of historical interest, and trails that provide plenty of material for wildflower enthusiasts.
