From Boise, Idaho, travel west on I84 to Idaho 55 to the junction with US 95. 40 miles south to the Jordan Craters road, heading west. Another 35 miles on dirt roads and down into the canyon to Birch Creek.
In the spring, rafters descend upon the Owyhee River in Oregon for 3-5 days. Their trucks and SUV's are shuttled to the let-out point at Birch Creek. Birch Creek is a local favorite as well as for many visitors. This shot was taken during one of those trips down into the canyon in May, 2010.
