Annual Backpacking Trip

Today I travel to NE Oregon to begin my annual 5 day backpacking trip. This year I have 4 other men joining me and we will be hiking in the Eagle Cap Wilderness, Wallowa Mountains. It is unlikely that there will be any communication options but today you never know. Full trip report will follow when I return.

Update – The trip was fabulous. The wilderness beauty was beyond what I expected. My solo climb to Glacier Lake was the ultimate highlight. Here is a glimpse.
