Wallowa Central Lakes Basin

Wallowa Mountains, Eagle Cap Wilderness

This is the most popular part of these mountains, and for good reason, as you will see. I hiked in up the East Fork of the Lostine River, hiked up Eagle Cap itself, and then hiked the small loop in the central Lakes Basin.

I think this is Douglas Lake. Or maybe Crescent Lake.
