Columbia Hills Natural Area Preserve Professional Review and Guide

"This natural preserve managed by the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is a huge 6000-acre area along the top portion of the long rolling hills and ridges known as the Columbia Hills, extending from The Dalles Mountain area westward.

Lupine and balsamroot form a solid carpet of color underfoot in springtime, and squadrons of songbirds flit and flutter around you, while majestic raptors—hawks, eagles, falcons, and vultures—soar overhead."
