New Hikes in Eastern Oregon
Join Oregon Natural Desert Association for the final installment in the High Desert Speaker Series! Bill Sullivan, Oregon’s hiking expert will take you on a slideshow tour of a dozen new trails he discovered while researching the third edition of his book, “100 Hikes/Travel Guide: Eastern Oregon.” Discover a colorful badlands on the Owyhee River, a new wilderness with cactus flowers on the John Day, and a viewpoint hike to a ranch at the east end of the Columbia Gorge. We’ll even explore half a dozen little-known hot springs. As always, Sullivan spices his talk with notes on the geology, wildlife and history of the land.
About the speaker: Bill Sullivan is the author of 20 books about Oregon, including “Hiking Oregon’s History” and the popular “100 Hikes” series. The Oregon Cultural Heritage Commission selected his journal of a 1,000-mile hike he took across Oregon in 1985, “Listening for Coyote,” as one of Oregon’s 100 Books— the 100 most significant books in the state’s history.
