Elkhorn Crest Backpack

August 11-13, 2006

Nine of us backpacked from Anthony Lake (west of Baker City) through the gorgeous granite peaks of the Elkhorn Range, a craggy part of the Blue Mountains. After five miles we camped at Dutch Flat Lake — scenic, but a bit shallow for swimming. From that base camp we took a 16-mile day hike south along the Elkhorn Crest Trail south to Summit Lake, which proved to be even more scenic, and perfect for swimming. Returning intact with leader Bill Sullivan were C. Stockdale, S. Wolling, P. Brown, and S. Hovis, as well as guests Janell Sorensen, Eskil Mikkelsen, and future Obsidian applicants Christy Fisher and John (Jack) Halpern.
