Fall Break: Backpack Oregon’s Canyonlands

Date: October 10, 2013 - October 13, 2013 PDT

Visit a gorgeous arid canyon as autumn blankets the high desert. This area is in the rainshadow of the Cascades, so the weather should be dry. The canyon walls tower above your camp here, making it feel like you’re in a smaller version of the Grand Canyon. One of the largest springs in eastern Oregon is in the middle of this proposed wilderness area.
