I am driving out to Oregon from Denver on April 28 (leaving in the afternoon) to meet 2 friends for a 4 day run down the Lower Owyhee (Rome to Birch Creek). This is mostly a wilderness camping trip, since the river is generally no more than class 3 with many flat stretches. The Owyhee is one of the most remote rivers in the Lower 48 and is often referred to as the "Grand Canyon of Oregon."
The plan right now is for a self-supported IK trip with one layover day at or near Lambert Rocks. I do have a small raft (12') that could be brought along to support other boaters. I would happily leave my IK behind and row the raft it if it is needed.
I plan to be back in the Denver area on or before May 4.
Contact me if you are interested in joining this trip.
