Black Canyon Professional Review and Guide
"This canyon is stunning! It offers black basalt talus slopes below steep cliffs, hillsides of brilliant wildflowers, and an array of birds. That’s right: Bird lovers, take note. This is an avian paradise. In addition to the everpresent raptors that soar above virtually all desert country, Black Canyon boasts stunning populations of mourning doves and western kingbirds. You’ll also find grouse, Hungarian partridge, and chukar. The road continues from the parking area, though the huge berm of dirt prevents further vehicle access. Follow the road as it climbs the canyon."
--Alan L. Bauer & Dan A. Nelson, Best Desert Hikes Washington (The Mountaineers Books).
