With spring in the air the Cottonwoods cry to be planted. Wildflowers shout for visitors to marvel at the colors of a desert landscape. OK, made not crying Cottonwoods and shouting flowers but Spring is great out here at Cottonwood.
Thanks to Oregon Parks Go Guide for the great article, and the avid hikers at oregonhikes.com for sharing suggestions for some great Spring Cottonwood adventures.
