Broad, rolling sand dunes. A wide, gurgling blue creek. Deep, emeraldgreen lakes. Towering mountains and vast meadows of desert wildflowers. All await you here. At 17,000 acres, the state-owned Crab Creek Wildlife Area is bigger than some federal wilderness areas in Washington State. What’s more, the area is just as rich in wildlife and natural habitat as many wildernesses. Crab Creek also has the distinction of being the longest creek in the United States, and the fact that much of it is protected as wildlife habitat makes it wonderfully special.
