Commonwealth Creek

Along the western slope of the Cascades, the differences by elevation in climate, vegetation, and the flow of creeks and streams are apparent and differ dramatically from the eastern slope of the Cascades. Thick tangles of salal and Oregon grape grow beneath tall Douglas fir and hemlock, and huckleberry bushes jut from decaying stumps and windfalls.
