White bluffs and bare sand dunes—naked nature—rise above the last free-flowing stretch of the Columbia River in one of the driest parts of Washington. A desert ecosystem thrives on the sandstone formations, and birds gather en masse in the water below. You can gaze down to the river and imagine the Columbia before it was shackled by dams or roam the wide open dunes and enjoy views of the Saddle Mountains to the north.
