Day 21. It was almost two years ago since we were in the Wallowas last. We spent five days backpacking through the wilderness with our friends and their dog. I’d never seen anything quite so breathtaking before. I’d also never spent the night in such frigid temps! We weren’t expecting so much snow in June, and weren’t well equipped in our approach shoes. What would it have been like with skis, I wonder?
Now we are back, under different circumstances, and we have skis! We went on a scouting expedition today to see if conditions will be good for some backcountry skiing next weekend. There is so much snow in these mountains, with more on the way!
Here is a view over Wallowa Lake with the mountain views behind. Yes, please.0
