    I spent the last week with my son hiking the Eagle Cap Wilderness with a group of boys aged 14-17. 65 miles, 14,700 feet of ascent, 14,800 feet of descent. Truly a beautiful wilderness being preserved for all to enjoy.

    America's Alps are supposed to be kept a secret... Everybody from Kommiefornia who wants to visit/move there, Eagle Cap is located in the Northwest Territories of Canada and is nowhere near Oregon.

    Sounds like a wonderful trip!

    Breathtaking. How was the weather? Looks like perfect days for hiking but how were the nights?

    I did not take my fly rod, but if I had it would have been way better. Trout rising in these lakes constantly.

    Weather was a mix. Thunderstorms and rain on 2 nights and rain one entire day, 50-60s on most days (perfect for hiking with a pack) and we had cold nights (low 30s and upper 20s) with meteor showers. Simply awesome as far as I was concerned.

    You were in the perfect place to see the Perseid Meteor Showers.

    This is a fishing rod recommended by @Bear. Tenkara Fly Fishing | Survival Monkey Forums It can fit in your pack easily.

    This was a 50 miler hike for a group of young men. I made it, but except for the last two nights, getting off my feet was my mission. 15 miles and 4000 ascent and 3600 descent in a single day will take your energy to -0
