Wow, once you get to the Wheeler - Walter saddle, the summit of Walter is literally a minute away.
Passed by this summit enroute to Wheeler. Lots of snow for early October.

Passed over Walter on the way to Wheeler.
I initially thought - and hoped - that Mount Walter was Wheeler Peak. Nice place, though, to pause before heading to New Mexico's highpoint.
Long hike on the way to Wheeler Peak.
nice to walk along the ridge on the way to Wheeler. PICS
Took Williams LakeTrail up to summit of Wheeler, then passed over Mt. Walter on the way down Bull of the Woods. Reached summit about 9:00 AM. Cold and windy with drifting snow, though wind did subside. Great views.
Bagged on the way to Wheeler.
