The dogs and I spent this morning exploring the uplands of Cowiche Canyon. Cowiche Canyon is a 2000 acre preserve just west of Yakima (about a ten minute drive from our house to the trailhead) that I had wandered around a little last summer. Lots of single track and double track trails for mountain biking and hiking. Very desert-like anywhere that’s not close to the creek at the bottom of the canyon. I think it’s a fairly popular spot for people to run their dogs too as our three dogs were sniffing like mad from the get-go. Neat views of Mount Adams and the Yakima Valley, but otherwise nothing too spectacular.
