I was lucky enough to get to detail that experience in my first story for British Columbia Magazine. A cover story at that!

Picture of the Week: Ice Lake

29 08 2013

Last week I took a quick overnight backpacking trip to track some waterfalls for the forthcoming Hiking Waterfalls in Oregon guidebook. Of course the waterfalls were great, but the view of Ice Lake from my tent in the morning was a jaw-dropper. Known as the “Oregon Alps,” the Wallowa Mountains certainly lived up to their reputation on this warm, summer morning. Click on pic for larger view.
