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.

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
