  2. How do you get your running video so fluid? Very nice. Like the sound track too.
    I have hiked in the Wallowas once at a place called Ice Lake. One of these days I hope to get back over there- It is beautiful country.
    Looks like you two had quite a run.

    1. The video was done with my new little GoPro toy.

      I passed Ice Lake on the final descent but didn't take the detour to actually go see it. Maybe next time if I'm not too tired. :)

    2. It is very pretty, but everything up there is!

  3. That last picture of jumping into the water looks ANYTHING but safe. I'll just assume the rocks were cleared, but wow.....

    By the way, do you get a lot of "robots" responding to your posts...that "type this unreadable string" is a real pain. :-)

    1. I did clear the rocks! :)

      And yeah, I started getting A LOT of robot spam in the last couple years. Maybe I'll turn off the verification filter for a month or so and see how things are now - maybe I'm under their radar again.

  4. Your photos are always amazing, but these are incredible - stunning scenery. The route looks like hard work though!

    1. Thanks, Liz. The Wallowas are definitely one of the most beautiful places I've ever been.

  5. Hey Scott, I love the pictures. The Wallowas are definitely my favorite climbing spot as of this summer...just as beautiful as the Cascades, but with less ridiculous weather.

    When did you take these pictures? Thinking of tackling Eagle Cap this weekend and wondering how much snow I'll have to deal with.

    1. Hey Ben -- There will be zero snow going up Eagle Cap. The photos were from Sept 1 and the trail was completely clear all the way up. It's a relatively easy hike from the lake basin area, so just a warning that you probably won't have the peak to yourself when you get up there (if that's what you're looking for) -- but the views are spectacular. I might be heading down again this weekend for some more running, but will probably skip bagging Eagle Cap again.

    2. Thanks! I'm hoping to get up there early and try the traverse over to Glacier Peak so maybe I'll get lucky and miss the crowds. By the way, is the photo two below the elevation chart of Aneroid Mountain? Just curious because I can't think of any other mountains in the area that look like that but it doesn't seem to make sense from where I think you took the picture.

    3. It is. That's the view looking back as I'm going up toward Tenderfoot Pass.
