May 2014 / Poison Creek / Southwestern Idaho
Poison Creek is a small (~20 miles long) tributary of the Jarbidge River. Both streams run through deep canyons that slice through flat range land. It’s flat-flat all around and then suddenly a series of cliffs drop down maybe 500 feet to the water far below. The confluence of Poison Creek and the Jarbidge River creates a canyon confluence where we camped. Beyond the canyons, looking south into Nevada, is the Jarbidge Range.
