Geologist & Naturalist to Guide Hike Along Wallula Gap May 14


If you’ve always wondered how the Wallula Gap on the Columbia River came to be – or just want to add to your knowledge – sign up for the day-long guided hike this Saturday, May 14.

Geology professor Bob Carson will explain how the water gap was cut through the Horse Heaven Hills anticline a very long time ago. Naturalist Mike Denny will highlight plants and species that thrive in this terrain, enduring high winds and arid conditions.

The 2- to 3-mile hike goes from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and is suitable for those 14 or older. Participants under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. All participants must be vaccinated.

The event is hosted by the Blue Mountain Land Trust. For more information and registration, go online. Email Katy Rizzuti at with questions.
