Visit a gorgeous arid canyon as autumn blankets the high desert. This area is in the rain shadow 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. While no previous experience is necessary, backpacking can be rigorous, and participants must be able to carry 50+lbs on their back for the duration of the trip.
