I'm not a hardcore hiker let alone a backpacker, although I did do rim to river and back in a day at the GC a few years ago. But what is the better hike, mostly visually, between Mt Washburn and Avalanche Peak? They seem similar in terms of length, vertical rise and peak elevation, but which one is going to give me the bigger Wow factor?
Can't answer your question, as I haven't done Avalanche. However, it's important to note that the park service just sent out a notice that Washburn is going to close for the rest of the season (maintenance and repair projects) around the beginning of July. Not sure if this affects your plans.
