Transam west-to-east June 1st start date - weather ?s
The other transam thread got me thinking about my own choice about heading out June 1st from Eugene, OR. What kind of weather can I expect on some of the passes in Oregon? I know that the Mckenzie pass will likely be closed, so we will have to take the Santiam pass detour, but that is the limit of my knowledge. Should I be prepared for freezing weather at this time of year on the higher passes in oregon?
What about the weather in Idaho in mid June? I understand that it can be hellishly hot in the valleys/canyons in the summer. My wife is particularly sensitive to the heat and sun, and I was hoping that it will be a little milder in mid June.
Thanks, your info is greatly appreciated.
