New Hikes in Eastern Oregon | Portland
February 24, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Oregon’s hiking guru 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 a half a dozen little-known hot springs. As always, Sullivan spices his talk with notes on the geology, wildlife and history of the land.
