This year’s 3-day expedition into Eastern Oregon’s Strawberry Mountain Wilderness will take us past two high mountain lakes, High Lake and Slide Lake, and along the backbone of the Strawberry Mountains.
Along the way, there are good views of Graham Mountain’s north-face cliffs and out to the John Day Valley. Graham’s summit, which sits at 8,750 feet above sea level, offers views of the Strawberry peaks and the Elkhorn Range to the east as well as the Aldrich Mountains (where we spent our 2010 backpacking trip) to the west. The summit has remnants from an old lookout and USGS survey markers.
If you want to go, fill out a medical release form for the 2013-2014 school year, and get it back to Eric by Friday, June 14, in order to reserve your spot. We have room on the trip for up to 16 high school students. The cost is $60. Download the packing list.
