Re: Wallowa River Loop - September 2019

... say that aside from E Eagle, the southern part of Eagle Cap is less frequented, though as you found, crowds depend on when you go. Ice Lake > Matterhorn > Sacajawea is pretty awesome, so if you wait till after Labor Day, maybe you will encounter fewer yahoos. (Ice Lake is less crowded than ...

Your report will motivate me to try this again, thanks, beautiful pics.
Actually, your earlier report was the one that made me hold off to go until end of July, so thanks for that.

Re: Wallowas 7/28/19 - 8/1/19 : Polaris Pass, Lakes Basin, Eagle Cap, Matterhorn

I wasn't sure if that long a stretch of good, sunny weather was atypical of that area, or common. It is common. While the area is much more prone to thunderstorms that the Cascades, I think I've only had tstorms on two of my Wallowa trips, and only one of them was really strong (and that was at Fra...

Nice!

That's what I tried to do a month ago. Next time I'll wait for more snow to melt off.

Your report will motivate me to try this again, thanks, beautiful pics.

We went to Ice Lake for 2 nights with a jaunt up Matterhorn and along the ridges the day between, then 2 nights at Horseshoe Lake with a trip around the Lakes Basin and up to Glacier Pass. Also wanted ...

I wasn't sure if that long a stretch of good, sunny weather was atypical of that area, or common. I had thought the Wallowas would be drier in general, so wasn't too surprised. Regardless, yes the weather fully cooperating was very nice.
