|Storm Over The Saddle Mountains|
Continued . . . Saddle Mountain National Wildlife Refuge lies adjacent to approximately 18 miles of the last free-flowing stretch of the Columbia River east of Mattawa in eastern Washington's Grant County. This shrub-steppe region is characterized by low precipitation and seasonal temperature extremes.
Wildlife abounds in this harsh landscape. Rare is a trip along the river that doesn't produce mule deer, coyotes, bald eagles, great blue herons, or white pelicans. A large elk herd hides in the canyons, and incredibly, porcupines are a common sight. Rare plants defy the drought, wind and heat. Beautiful spring wildflower displays delight the visitor who venture into the field.
