Follow the Oregon Field Guide crew on horseback along narrow trails and rugged terrain, passing through charred remains of the 1987 Silver Fire as they climb to the top of Bald Mountain. This is a special trip lead by Dave Willis, a fierce advocate for protection of this richly biodiverse area. Meet Lou Gold, a resident of the area that shows us flowers and offers up a ceremony for the area. Continue the trip down into the Illinois River Canyon.
