RIVERS -- Bonnie Olin, author of Owyhee River Journals, will present a program and video about her experiences on Thursday (March 7), at 7 p.m. at Jack and Dan's Bar and Grill, corner of Hamilton Stree and Sharp Avenue.

The program is free, but reservations are required by Wednesday to reserve a seat in the limited space. Contact Northwest Whitewater Association:

email spokanerafterguy@comcast.net or phone/text: 509-220-8018.

The Owyhee canyons in southwestern Idaho and Oregon -- flushed with rushes of whitewater -- are wild country, much of it proposed for wilderness.

"A trip into the Owyhee still allows you to feel like you are the first and only person to have set foot there," she says." It is here that it is still possible to "unplug" completely from the modern world, Olin said.  It is one of the last places in the lower 48 states in which you do not require a permit to "just go."
