Gifford Pinchot Wilderness

The Goat Rocks Wilderness in SE Washington is definitely one of my favorite spots to go backpacking. If you have not been yet and you like to hike and backpack this needs to be on your must visit list for summer. I am sure I will be there again in August or September this year for a couple days or more. The Gifford Pinchot Task Force spearheads the preservation and conservation in this area and all other areas in the Gifford Pinchot Wilderness. They recently selected one of my images for their 2008 Summer Newsletter which goes to several thousand members. This is one of the few places in the northwest that wildflowers such as Lupine are in full bloom real late in the season. This photo was taken 9/9/07 less than a mile from Goat Lake at about 8k feet.
