In this presentation, Craig Romano will spotlight scenically stunning and biologically diverse landscapes in Washington State, east of the Columbia and Okanogan Rivers. Drawing from his new book co-written with Rich Landers, Craig will explore the deep canyons of the Blue Mountains, towering dunes of the Hanford Reach, channeled scablands of the Columbia River Plateau, lofty Kettle River Range, grizzly and caribou harboring Selkirk Mountains, and the plethora of conservation lands ringing the Spokane Valley.
Craig, who has traveled extensively throughout the world, ranks Washington State, where he has hiked more than 15,000 miles, among the most beautiful places on the planet. He is author of eight books and co-author of two others. He holds a BA in history and Masters in Education from the University of Washington. His latest book, Day Hiking Eastern Washington, will be on sale at this presentation.
