  • Group size: 55
  • Instructor: Author, Bonnie Olin

Join writer Bonnie Olin and REI at WildCraft Cider Works for a richly-illustrated journey into the canyonlands of the Owyhee River in Oregon, Idaho and Nevada. This talk is based on her book, The Owyhee River Journals, which includes 125 color photos of rarely seen landscapes by photographer Mike Quigley, created over many years of travel together. Mike Quigley has been exploring the Owyhee Canyonlands since 1975. Bonnie Olin joined him in 1993 and began keeping a personal record of their journeys together. Her journals, combined with Mike's 125 full color photographs of rarely seen landscapes, allow the readers to take a vicarious journey of their own, into the canyonlands of the Owyhee River in Nevada, Idaho and Oregon. Photos include the East Fork, South Fork, Main Stem and Lower Owyhee, as well as West Little Owyhee, Deep Creek, and Dickshooter Creek (Black Canyon). Bonnie will share a brief history of the area, discuss why it is unique, read a short excerpt from the book, and show a 20-minute video of a 2006 expedition into Deep Creek and the East Fork of the Owyhee. Her presentation will be followed by a question and answer period and book signing.
