The Owyhee Canyonlands are located in three states, Idaho, Oregon and Nevada and are a national treasure that has often been considered for National Park or Monument status. Sections of it are now being considered for Wilderness preservation. The spectacular view in this panorama shows where the Owyhee River has eroded a 400 foot cliff. The river used to run around the rock prominence to the left through an old meander. Today this is a blackwater swamp called The Tules. Several additional panoramas from this special area in the Owyhee Canyonlands are available.

We feel the Owyhee Canyonlands qualifies as a World Heritage Site for the following reasons as identified by the Sierra Club.
1. "The area has value as an entire and intact landscape of sage steppe, canyonlands, and woodlands..." 2. "Its unique geology features a massive complex of exposed rhyolite canyons found nowhere else in the world..." 3. "The area has deep historical significance, reaching back over 12,000 years..." 4. "The Canyonlands have value as a natural laboratory for scientific research..."
