Copper Creek Drainage Panorama
Bridge over the East Fork Lostine River
Lostine River (a little more energentic in this stretch) - it was at a point where it narrowed and fell quite a bit
The dusty trail
The Lostine river just upstream - a lot more subdued
There were icicles in the river!!! BRRRRR!
Bottom of a rockslide - Lostine River below
Is this a different profile of Elkhorn peak?
First crossing of Lostine River - right after horse camp
I think this is Copper creek
Second creek crossing - this is where we had lunch
High elevation meadow - Elkhorn creek runs through it
Looking back at the meadow we just came from - and the interesting rock slides
That is the valley we hiked up - Copper creek is down there somewhere
This should be Elkhorn creek - neat little waterfall
Interesting root formation on the granite
Another high elevation meadow - and more climbing
A curious little chipmunk in a high elevation meadow
Peeking his head out of one of the many holes - there was quite an underground lair...
I don't know what the mountain peeking over the top is. I wish I knew.
We have finally reached the high point of our trip - 8600'!!!! That is swamp lake in the background
The switchbacks we will soon be heading down. They take you down to swamp lake
Swamp Lakes basin
Still snow in the middle of September!
Weird little grass "tufts" in the swamp lakes basin
We came from up there about 45 minutes ago
