This is pretty much the hike I am planning on doing this weekend. Or at least as similar as I could hope for a trip report about. I've only got 3 days, and I didn't want to make my girlfriend drive 8 hours roundtrip from Corvallis to shuttle me from one end to the other, so I am altering my original plans, and think I am going to car camp at the Walupt TH Friday night, and then on Saturday hike over to the Tieton Pass / Lutz Lake area, and camp. Sunday will be a hike down to Berry Patch/Snowgrass TH, camp near there, and then hike back to Walupt Monday morning.

Thanks for all the encouraging pictures, and wonderful descriptions, but I can't wait to see it for myself. I am sure they aren't easy on the feet miles, but they definitely look easy on the eyes. I'll post a trip report probably on Tuesday once I've had a chance to rest. Right now the weather is showing as great on Saturday, with chances of rain on Sunday, so I'll have to pack my coat, but I wanted to get up there before things got snowy/icy, and this might be the last weekend of the year, I can do that.

Had you done any prep work, or been there before TexasBB, or was this trip your first foray into Goat Rocks, you said you 'led a small group', so I assume you'd been there before?

A month ago I did Berry Patch, Goat Lake, most of the way up Old Snowy, Sheep Lake (above Walupt), Snowgrass Flat. That was pretty good.

Be flexible about your plans, weather could deteriorate.

I just looked at page 1 - Aug 5 I suggested the same. I guess I then took my own advice :)

Yes, I'd been there many times, though this was the first time I hiked all the way through to White Pass. Hope you're having a great time!
