Dancing in the coulees, hills and valleys of Eastern Washington are carpets of color, as wildflowers burst through basalt rock. Among this sits two preserves stewarded by The Nature Conservancy of Washington—Moses Coulee and Beezley Hills—where (right now!) you can view constellations of violet, blue, pink, yellow and white blooms as they enhance the sage brush backdrop. It’s enough to either take your breath away or cause you to breath deeper, slower than before. And if you pay close attention, every other breath is filled with the aroma of sage carried on the breeze.
