Central Washington Wildflowers
I’m Bruce Perrault and we live near Cowiche, Washington State, where my wife Pauletta and I are retired. We live on Cowiche Creek, where we built our "Little House On The Creek" and moved there in February 2018. We enjoy gardening and the outdoors, Pauletta her flowers and I my trees and wildflowers. I also enjoy hiking, photography and astronomy, sometimes combining these hobbies with trips within our area. I have my favorite places to wander and make pictures and really enjoy native wildflowers. With these, timing is everything, here today, gone tomorrow. Many of the wildflowers are in bloom only a day or two and the Spring winds, frost and munching animals can be hard on them. I grew up near the Rattlesnake Hills in the Yakima Valley (Outlook, WA) and my wanderings also took me into the high mountains, mostly in the Goat Rocks, William O Douglas and Norse Peak wilderness areas of Central Washington State and the Sagebrush Steppe areas nearby. This website will become the new home of Central Washington Wildflowers (my old website), including the 68 public photo albums of which 6 are Master Albums. There are nearly 4000 images to view in the albums. Click or tap the thumbnail images to view them.
