DescriptionThe Blue Mountains ecoregion (BME) extends from the Ochoco Mountains in central Oregon to Hells Canyon of the Snake River in extreme northeastern Oregon and adjacent Idaho, and then north to the deeply carved canyons and basalt rimrock of southeastern Washington (see fig. 1.1 in chapter 1). The BME consists of a series of mountain ranges occurring in a southwest to northeast orientation, allowing the BME to function ecologically and floristically as a transverse bridge between the Cascade Mountains province to the west, and the main portion of the middle Rocky Mountains province to the east.
