Wallowa Loop

They call the Wallowa Range the “Alps of Oregon”.  I don’t know who ‘they’ are, but I think they missed it.  With autumn in full swing, I put together an ambitious loop in the Eagle Cap Wilderness to see as much of these mountains as my legs would allow in three nights.  I saw a lot.  Comparing the Wallowas to the Alps is a mistake.  There are no Alps in Oregon.  The Wallowas are Oregon mountains.  They are stunning, and that’s good enough for me.

The stats:

Trailhead:  East Eagle Trailhead
Passes:  Frazier Pass, “Granite Pass” (unnamed), Ivan Carper Pass, Glacier Pass, Polaris Pass, and Tenderfoot Pass
Trip odo:  74 miles
Elevation Gain/Loss:  15,300/15,300ft
