175.3 miles on the Owyhee River - A solo packrafting adventure on the Oregon Desert Trail

What an adventure! I spent the last 12 days hiking and packrafting on the Oregon Desert Trail in the Owyhee River from the Little West Owyhee at Anderson Crossing to the Indian Springs Campground on Lake Owyhee. It was a total of 141.5 river miles, and 33.8 hiking miles, mostly along the Little West Owyhee to get to the flowing river at 5 Bar.

Stay tuned for photos, a trip report, gear list and more, but here are a few images, and you can read my daily blog here. (scheduled posts coming daily for another week)

Widowmaker was a bunch of rocks 

Sometimes I had to lower my boat and myself over the rocks

Lots of calm pools to swim in

Fun little Class II & III rapids at low flow
