You start out hiking out of a valley and its moist mixed conifer forest (can’t remember exactly, firs, maybe even cedars?), and then you round a bend and go up higher and you start going into grassy savanna rolling hills and then into oak savanna, and then oak savanna mixing into conifer-oak forest… super beautiful. I couldn’t believe to find Nephroma’s there! … I’d always thought that for a wide stretch along the Columbia Gorge there, that there’s alot of air pollution (“exhaust pipe for Portland and the interior agriculture”… something like that said in a McCune paper from a decade ago…), but seemingly the lichens say no, nope :)

It is amazing… visiting the oak groves going from the east end of their range (Badger Creek WA-DNR area) to this site on western edge of the eastern Cascades… you’d love it!

What a neat place
