Hiking into the Owyhee Canyonlands to install a crest stage gage

Detailed Description

Bureau of Land Management wilderness ranger Evan Worthington leads U.S. Geological Survey hydrographers John Carricaburu and Russ Miller over a canyon rim and down to Deep Creek to install a crest stage gage. USGS scientists will incorporte data from the gage into an evaluation of streamflow in the Owyhee Canyonlands. The BLM will use those analyses in their water rights claims to protect Wild and Scenic River segments in this rugged wilderness area of southwestern Idaho.
