Gooding City of Rocks

Description:

The Gooding City of Rocks and the Little City of Rocks have unique rock formations rising from the desert floor. The Bennett Hills, located on the north edge of the Snake River Plain, are composed of welded volcanic tufts formed when intense volcanic eruptions in the region produced dense clouds of ash which fused together on the ground over time. If you do visit, use Leave No Trace hiking techniques.

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
