Cougar Mountain

Sunset from Cougar Mountain, in Cougar Mountain Roadless Area in northeast Washington. A transition area between the arid Columbia Plateau to the south and west and the Kettle Range to the east, Cougar Mountain features rocky islands of shrub steppe that peek out above forests of old-growth Douglas-fir and ponderosa pine. Amazingly, this is one of the few places I’ve been in the U.S. where even the skies are quiet; it’s rare to hear air traffic above this quiet corner of the state.
