The world's most essential crop is grown in abundance here - wheat. Farming is so prevalent in Garfield County, that even though it's the state's least populous county (pop. around 2,300) there are an amazing 225 farms. Wheat fields dominate the landscape, but you will also find plenty of cattle, goats, sheep, etc. and country folk who are extremely capable of taking care of themselves.
Bordered by the Snake River to the north, and Oregon to the south, you can enjoy one of the several campgrounds on the Washington side of the Blue Mountains. Hiking alone, it's easy to immerse yourself in the history of the area - from Lewis and Clark to indigenous tribes which have hunted and fished the area for several thousand years.
