Moby Goes to Big Jack’s Creek

February 2015

Big Jack’s Creek Wilderness, in the Owyhee Mountain region in southwestern Idaho, is managed by the BLM. The steep and rugged canyon is difficult to access except for a few places like this one. We went in February for a weekend campout, and it was cold, but dry and sunny.

Larry found a small arrowhead or bird point near this isolated rock outcrop. In an otherwise barren landscape, birds commonly perch in places like these.

The Parker Trail provides access to the bottom of Big Jack's Canyon via a good trail. It's about 2.5 miles out and back.

Without a trail, getting to the bottom of the canyon would be slow, hard going.
