The Owyhee Canyonlands cover over 10,000 square miles (25,900 square kilometers) of the western United States. It’s roughly the size of Massachusetts. It’s so rugged and hard to access that, despite it’s size, very few people live there or have even heard of it. It’s inaccessibility has kept its deep canyons and starry sky secret and pure. You won’t find it in many guidebooks. Above is a peek inside from Flickr members that traveled through it.
