The intent of this website is to help determine the flora of Mt. Adams and its adjacent area and the fauna that depend upon them! The area of this study extends from the Klickitat River on the east and westward across the mountain to the Lewis River near Twin Falls in the west. It extends from Potato Hill in the north to the southern edge of the valleys where Trout Lake and Glenwood, WA are located and southward along the Goldendale-Glenwood Highway to where the highway crosses the Klickitat River.
