Malden sits on the meandering boundary between the flat, arid Columbia Basin and the forested breaks of the Rocky Mountain foothills. It's circled by steep grassy hillsides with intermittent stands of scrub pine and rocky outcrops, and the vegetation, though often sparse, provides grazing for hardy white-faced cattle. Farmers also grow grain in these hills, and resident ground squirrels are a special bane to some, who encourage hunters to use them as targets. The farmers have been known to provide the shells.
Camas — The Camas-Washougal Aviation Association won the Spirit of Aviation award, given out by the Northwest Washington Aviation Association in conjunction with the Aircraft Owners and Pilot's Association. The award is given to groups and people who display a passion for aviation. The award comes after a fire in October at the Grove Field Airport in Camas, where the group operates out of, destroyed 10 hangar bays and several recreational planes. Since the fire, the organization has formed new committees, held new events and continued to champion aviation. A press release sent out by the organization said the award "brings light in a dark time for CWAA."
