Subtle Blooms and Bold Terrain: Wildflowers of the Blue Mountains Professional Review and Guide

"For deep canyons and wildflowers more typical of the Rocky Mountains, travel to the eastern slopes of the Blue Mountains. From Asotin drive south along the eastern edge of the Blue Mountains. This is agricultural land, where yellow canola fields peak in mid-June and ancient barns are picturesque year-round.

The park is built on Puffer Butte overlooking the Grand Ronde River. Hike up to the top of the butte for a sweeping three-state view of mountains and canyons (incredible at dawn).You’ll see wildflowers of the wetter habitats (calypso orchids, monkeyflowers, etc.) at the start of the trail and the more common sage and shrub-steppe wildflowers at the top. Listen for coyotes, songbirds, and drumming grouse; watch for white-tailed deer and raptors."
