My Locale Maroon Bells
About Me I was more of a BWCA guy but am getting into
backpacking because my wife loves it so much and
then we can do more together. On the sunset side
of 60. In 2008 and 2009 I spent more time backpacking than canoeing.

Chris, I haven't been to the Cirque but you can't go wrong with Titcomb Basin. Here is a link to a trip I did there in 2010 with my wife and daughter. http://www.flickr.com/photos/d1948...

One thing to remember about the BWCA is that if you have to come out to resupply you have to get a new permit.

Winds
You could traverse the Winds north to south and by adding side trips and fishing you could spend your whole vacation there easily esp if you spend time off trail.
