Where three branches of the Owyhee River come together in Eastern Oregon is a gorgeous convergence of canyons that seem to be straight from the southwest. The hike starts out down a steep hill to where the rivers meet. High clearance vehicles could descend here. The hike then follows the canyon made by the North Fork as it winds through. There is considerable wading and an occasional swim. From the base of the hill, each of the forks can be explored and each cut out their own canyons through these dry hills.
