Basalt columns grow lichen in the Quincy Wildlife Area.
tâ€™s spring and time to start putting in miles to get back into shape for the summer hiking season. This is my favorite time of year in the valley; the hills are green and the wildflowers are blooming. Iâ€™ll be busy hitting the trails in the Wenatchee foothills, Colockum area and the Columbia Basin, looking for beautiful photos that make this such a rewarding place to live.
