Meg and I hiked into McCully basin this July 3rd. McCully basin is part of the Eagle Cap Wilderness in Wallowa County in the NE corner of Oregon. It is off the beaten path even for most backpackers in the Eagle Caps. Very few feet have hiked, very few yes have seen, this basin. It lies underneath the snow for most of the year. But just after the snow clears, this beautiful meadow is filled with buttercups stretching far off into the distance.
