April 16 & 29, 2017: Columbia Hills State Park, Washington

These photos are from two separate trips to the Columbia Hills.

April 16: a stand-alone outing to Columbia Hills State Park, with a brief stop at Catherine Creek on the way home. From the upper Natural Area Preserve trailhead, we made a brief visit to "Rattlesnake Rim," but unfortunately it was a cloudy day, and no snakes were out and about.

April 29: a minor detour across the ridge on Dalles Mountain Road, while on my way to Utah.
