Williams Lake basin and surrounding peaks have to be my favorite area of New Mexico.

Awesome hike. I kinda like the views from Walter more than Wheeler. But if you're going to go that high, why not go to Wheeler? Pics

It was a beautiful morning on my way to Wheeler Peak. Mt. Walter received a dusting of snow the night before we hiked up. Took Bull Of The Woods route up and down. Spent a night in La Cal Basin.

Ascended via Bull of the Woods. It rained from the TH to La Cal Basin. It was clear and the summit was windy. I guess I summitted twice, once going and once coming.

Climbed the ridge from Kachina all the way to Wheeler. We hit Kachina Peak...An unnamed peak, Lake Fork Peak, "Bighorn Peak",Pt 12,728, Simpson, Old Mike, Wheeler, and then Walter. Started at 7:20am and then finished at 5:30. We started at the Williams Lake Trailhead. Amazing day! The weather somehow cooperated with us the whole time. Very fun traverse. Saw lots of Elk, Bighorn Sheep and Mountain Goats. SO MUCH FUN!!

Bagged this on the way to the summit of Wheeler. Seems pretty easy since the trail runs right over the summit.

Made this attempt seriously out of shape and paid for it. Summiting this mountain was anti-climatic since out goal was Mt. Wheeler for this trip. Nice to have it anyway. Great time with our crew.

Tagged Mount Walter on the way down after hiking up to the summit of Wheeler Peak via the Williams Lake trail. Cool & windy day along the summit ridge (3.5 hrs car-to-car).

RedwicWeather Issues At The Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2007


Starting in the early morning, there were beautiful weather conditions... *until* I climbed halfway up the saddle-slope between Wheeler Peak & Mount Walter. Then, suddenly, a solid cloud blanket covered over both peaks. The wind picked up, and it quickly felt like the temperature dropped to below freezing. When I reached Wheeler Peak's summit, the cloud/fog was so thick that I couldn't see 2-3 feet in front of me, so I jogged over to Mount Walter's summit to hopefully find more suitable conditions... only to find much of the same thick cloud cover there. It was too bad, as I bet that the views from the summits would have been spectacular. Thank goodness for my GPS & general pathfinding skills. The Williams Lake Trail is very nice!!!
