Oregon and Washington's Roadside Ecology: 33 Easy Walks Through the Region's Amazing Natural Areas
by Roddy Scheer Author
If you've ever had the privilege of driving around the Pacific Northwest, you can hardly have missed the fact that it's totally gorgeous. Enormous pine forests and jagged volcanic peaks, rolling hills and deep river canyons, sagebrush desert and scraggly plateaus: Oregon and Washington have it all. With this handy guide, you'll be able to experience a little bit more of that vast array of scenery without having to stray too far from your car. Author Roddy Scheer has compiled a list of 33 short walks that will give you a better look at some of the incredible landscapes and ecology in the Pacific Northwest. Scheer can teach you how to read a landscape and begin to ask questions like: how did this argillite boulder wind up 800 miles away from other similar rocks? How did these petrified subtropical plants end up in the middle of the high desert? For the ecologically curious traveler, this book is a must read.
