The Dalles Mountain Road is in great shape for wildflowers. Balsamroot and lupine are all in peak bloom.
The Road is a favorite April destination, providing “big sky” views across the Columbia River towards Mount Hood. And, important for us photographers, the wildflowers and views are all protected and made accessible as a State Park.
Also sprouting up are dozens of wind turbines up on Haystack Butte and the surrounding mountaintops.
