Minam Bar
May 11th - May 13th - All Day
Minam to Heller Bar, 90 miles in 3 days. Be ready to forward row and spend some time on the river each day to make the miles, but hopefully a good runoff will flush us downstream. In return you get great scenery, good camping and green canyon walls in this early season perennial trip. Bald eagles almost guaranteed.
