Every time I do an Owyhee trip I like to think of Prince Helfrich and his gang that pioneered the runs most of us do today. Going down the upper south fork this year I pondered how it must have been running an early version of the McKenzie River drift boat down the canyon in the 1950s and 60s. What a crew.

Prince wrote some regular articles for the Eugene Register Guard and reported several river exploits there, a couple I like from/near the Owyhee are attached.
