We climbed Mt. Walter enroute to the Wheeler Peak summit after camping the previous night in the La Cal Basin.
We climbed Walter on the way to Wheeler Peak. There were some extremely psycadellic snow formations on the way up caused by Wind & melt. Early may was a good to to visit Walter because of the lack of people on the mountain during this time of year.
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.

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.
