Saddle Mountain

Description:

Elevations range from a low of 486 feet at the Columbia River to approximately 2,700 feet at Wahatis Peak to the east. The Saddle Mountains have a gentle southern slope in contrast to theprecipitously bold relief of the north-facingcliffs. There are sand dunes on the western toe slopes caused by consistent strong winds along the Columbia River. Vegetation is dominated by big sagebrush and bluebunch wheatgrass. Bluebunchwheatgrass dominates the grass community at the higher elevations and cheatgrass dominates the lower levels.
