Whispering stands of cottonwoods shine against the brilliantly polarized eastern Washington blue sky, while cool blue pools reflect their graceful beauty. The Quincy Wildlife Recreation Area boasts several sparkling lakes nestled in the long, deep coulees of the area. Hiking around these remarkable desert gems provides an immersion not only in desert ecology but also in the more uncommon desert riparian ecology. The common desert community of quails and chukars is joined by the less common desert population of waterfowl—including mallards, mergansers, and teals.
