Oregon Field Guide joins a multi-day packrafting expedition through the heart of the little-known Wenaha-Tuccannon wilderness. Tim Palmer, author of over two dozen guidebooks to rivers and wild places, and Zach Collier, and outfitter and river runner, lead this remote expedition down 22 miles of the Wenaha river in Oregon’s Blue Mountains.

They encounter low water, log-jams and the blackened forest burned by the Grizzly Bear fire of 2015, but they also experience the deepest kind of wilderness solitude.
