I'm getting ready to hike/packraft 175 miles of the Owyhee River on the Oregon Desert Trail.
Patagonia just published a great series of photos from ultra runner Jeff Browning's run in this section of the ODT in May, He had much higher flows, and where the "trail" follows the rim of the canyon for many miles, I'll stay in the river and float/walk my way downstream.
Did I mention it's my job to develop the Oregon Desert Trail?? I'm in heaven!
It's a heavy load, but my Six Moon Designs Flex Pack seems up to the task. (Unfortunately this prep pack shot doesn't include 7 days of food. yet Ouch.)
Head on over to my hiking blog for updates later next week (if I get reception out there).
