Always A Favorite #Bucketlist Location: The Owyhee Canyonlands
The Owyhee Canyonlands is a huge and remote area of eastern Oregon, southwestern Idaho and northern Nevada. Hidden within this vast high desert plateau are deep canyons carved by the Owyhee, Bruneau, and Jarbidge Rivers. These rivers, recognized as Wilderness, offer something for nearly every level of boating experience.
In 1984, Congress recognized this unsurpassed beauty by designating 120 miles of the spectacular Owyhee River located in Oregon as a wild river component of the National Wild and Scenic River System. The Idaho portions were designated Wild and Scenic Rivers in 2009. Click here to learn more.
