Photos from exploring and camping in the Owyhee canyonlands area; S.E. Oregon..

'The Owyhee Canyonlands, located in the southeast corner of Oregon and extending into Idaho and Nevada, represents one of the largest unprotected wild places still found in the lower 48 states.

The diverse landscape of the Owyhee region consists of a maze-like system of steep, colorful river canyons slicing through a broad sagebrush sea and juniper-covered mountains. The biologically rich area is home and critical habitat to California bighorn sheep, redband trout, sage grouse, pronghorn antelope, elk, deer, raptors and songbirds.
The remote and rugged Owyhee region is one of the few places left in the disappearing American West where one can still experience the stark, silent beauty of the high desert and traverse the rugged country on its own unforgiving, challenging terms'. {ONDA}
