Throughout my internship with Cowiche Canyon Conservancy, I learned about the diversity of, and found a new appreciation for, the Yakima Valley. All the small and big experiences my team and I went through were fun, exciting, and new for me. Hiking throughout Cowiche Canyon, driving up to the top of Snow Mountain Ranch, and wading through the river are all experiences I hope to never forget. From the hot sunny days to the hail and rain, thrashing through rose bushes and thistles, to feeling the cold rush of the river around my waders.
