Chief Joseph Wildlife Area–Green Gulch Professional Review and Guide
"This corner of the state is a very wild land and makes you feel very small in God’s creation. This is one of the most remote parts of Washington, with a small human population in the immediate area but a huge population of wildlife and birds. What’s more, as you hike through Washington’s desert, you’ll be just 3 or 4 miles from Oregon and 8 to 10 miles from Idaho—but as the saying goes, you can’t get there from here. The other states are isolated by rushing rivers that lack bridges. You must make long detours around this area to get to the other states. That increases the isolation of this stunning natural area."
--Alan L. Bauer & Dan A. Nelson, Best Desert Hikes Washington (The Mountaineers Books).
