awwww, my husband and I built that water bar on Hurricane 10 years ago. We did a 7 day work party with FS and American Hiking Society.

I will be in the Wallowas 8/14-8/20 with my bro in law Petr. Because of you and Bruce's awesome adventures . . . my brain is in a serious state of excitement. Your trip reports make us all want to take a step back and look at traditional hikes upside down, in reverse, at different angles, in different dimensions, etc. Ha! So we be looking at our original route and making changes that fit within our hiking style, experience, and um . . . pack weight. Best Regards my friend, Jim57

Epic trip report. Especially liked Razzberry Lake--haven't seen a photo of it before.

And you aren't old--just startin out.
I keep making protein shakes but they always turn out like margaritas.

Flippin awesome report. I tried the Bosterson Gap in 2014. Tried from Ice lake, it is gnarly, time consuming, route finding juggernaut, got close to descent point and didn't like exposure, hiking buddy had a large slab shift on him during ascent and puckered a bit. Visited Razz, Upper Razz in 2015 (don't follow Barstad description) crossed over to lakes Basin and ascended to seldom visited Pocket lake (a gem).
