Cold and clear, Mirror Lake resides in a beautiful basin with Eagle Cap Mountain standing guard (out of sight this day due to the rain clouds). Notice the puddles in the slab rock foreground. This photo was taken in between one of many rain showers this day. Rain or no, the Eagle Cap Wilderness.....is beautiful.
These photos are from August 19th - 21st, 2008. Our youngest son flew up from Arizona to join me on some select hikes. We had to constantly modify our plans because of the rough weather moving through the Northwest, but we had three great hikes and saw some interesting and beautiful country.
We drove back roads from our home in Eastern Washington, through Walla Walla and over into Elgin, Oregon. From there we drove to Lostine, where we headed for the Two Pan trailhead to the Eagle Cap Wilderness, where we hoped to a day hike and both of us see for the first time, some of the country that makes up this beautiful Oregon wilderness area.
We arrived just in time to set up our two tents at Two Pan. We had to use headlamps to finish the job, but a nice small campfire warmed the night. We both slept well, though rain drops spattered on our tents off and on, all through the night.
We made a round trip hike of 16 miles the next day, heading up the Lostine River, and choosing to visit Mirror and Moccasin Lake instead of another choice we could have made, which would have been to hike to Minam Lake.
We got rained on lightly on and off most of the day but the scenery was not diminished by the weather. The granite floored country of the upper basin and around Mirror and Moccasin Lakes, reminded me of the Enchantment Lakes area in Washington State. Because of the clouds we never did catch a glimpse of Eagle Cap mountain. A good excuse for going back again.
We got pelted by a pretty hard rain on the way back to our campsite but a lull in the rain let us enjoy a nice camp dinner. When the rain returned, we decided to head for Enterprise, get an inexpensive motel room, and dry out our gear. The rain storms followed us to Enterprise and soon after checking into our motel room, the town lost electrical power. All part of the fun and adventure of a “road trip”.
We poked around Joseph, Oregon the next day as my son had not been there as an adult. We enjoyed ourselves there, and then took another route back home, so we could see some different sights.
Two hours after arriving home that evening, we changed some of our gear, and headed for Mt. Rainier Park to hike to Mildred Point on Friday and then 3rd Burroughs Mt. on Saturday. We got back home Saturday afternoon, two hours before his flight back to Arizona. We had covered a lot of country on our three hikes, and had a great time doing so.
Mirror's Grain - Pattern on the floor
The Mirror's Grain is an alchemical experiment masquerading as a live performance installation. By combining a variety of elements in the crucible of sand between the rivers Kenfig and Ogmore, the artists present their discovery of a rich and strange compound elixir.
Deliriously inventive and intellectually stimulating, The Mirror's Grain explores surprising new ways of seeing ourselves in a world in which limits are the new frontiers.
