The Malheur River Valley.

Except for the agricultural areas around Vale, at the northwest corner of the graticule, and Jordan Valley, just off the southeast, this area is among the must rugged and remote in Oregon. Owyhee Lake, a reservoir more than 50 miles long, is a dominant local feature. Some of the extreme eastern edge of the graticule extends slightly into Idaho.
