Owyhee Oasis – Birch Creek Ranch State Park, Oregon

Every cloud completely disappeared by the time golden and blue hours arrived. So here is a daylight shot of the ranch at Birch Creek on the Owyhee River.

This is a popular take out location for river rafters on the Owyhee. Highlights of this trip include a nail biting decent into the canyon while trying not to ding, dent or otherwise wreck my wife’s suburban destroyer (Ford Explorer), Deciding to stand on a GIANT ant hill to take a leak and oh yeah.. the rattlers were out. On the upside, the bugs weren’t too bad. It all would have been worth it, if the sky would have just cooperated with me a bit more.

All that being said, it is remote, rugged and beautiful country. It just wasn’t my day LOL.
