|Juniper Ridge Camp at the top of the Honeycombs|
Normally this is an easy one day out and one day back round trip but with heavy camera equipment and having to carry water I opted to have freinds drop me off at the trail head and then pick me up by boat on the Reservoir at Bensley Flat two days latter.
Two miles in from the trail head is a nice camp on Juniper Ridge with stunning views of the Owyhee Desert and the craggy Honeycomb canyon below.
In mid canyon there are several overhangs that provide shade to hikers. This is a good spot to make camp to explore and photograph the canyons unique ash formations.

From mid canyon it is a short 1.5 mile walk to the Reservoir. There are many good options for camping with a ton of cottonwood trees for shade. I choose a different option and traveled out via boat.
