Glacier Lake/Frazier Lake Loop and Carper Pass


Wallowa Mountains, Eagle Cap Wilderness

This is a loop of about 13 miles. I took it clockwise. It goes east from the Lakes Basin, dropping down to the Wallowa River, climbing back up to Frazier Lake, where I camped, then up to Glacier Lake and Glacier Pass, before dropping down to Moccasin Lake. I then continued straight west out of the Lakes Basin and over Carper Pass.

Near Six Mile Meadow and the junction with the Wallowa River.
