    Teton Crest Trail - August 2017

    Last August some friends and I did our first ever backpacking trip in the Tetons. It was such a fun trip! I had been wanting to do the TCT for many years! Because of work schedules and vacations days we were only able to do a 3 day trip. We cheated and took the tram at Teton Village and hiked...

    Lava Creek, Teton Wilderness - October 6, 2017

    I've been taking advantage, weather permitting, of the Columbus Day weekend for a number of years to head up to the Teton Wilderness and get some October backpacking in. These trips tend to be the last of my backpacking for the year, so I always look forward to a short trip before the snow...

    Paintbrush/Cascade in Grand Teton

    All - thanks for all of your help in assisting me and my group in planning our trip. Leading up to the trip we thought we would need ice axes for the Divide (we were permitted for Aug 3-5). When we went to the Ranger station in Moose/Visitor Center on the 2nd they showed us a picture and said...

    Yellowstone and Teton, July 2015

    Two iconic parks in one whirlwind weekend. The accommodations were relatively plush. Two nights in Island Park and a third on the shores of Jackson Lake at the Signal Mountain Lodge. Hikes were, with one exception, short and languid. That one exception: I nearly caused myself a cardiac crisis...

    Teton Crest trail. ...Doug and Anita Tour 2015...final chapter!

    No sleeping in today! This was another big day that we had been dreaming about for months. Today we would climb up over Paintbrush Divide. But it wasn't going to be easy. We could make out the trail from our camp, as it climbed steadily along the increasingly steep mountain slope. No...

    Teton Crest trail. ..Doug and Anita Tour 2015...part 2

    What can I say, woke up to another beautiful day and it was going to be a big one. We had waited for this day for months. You hear about it, you read about it. Today we were going over Hurricane Pass but it was going to be a five+ mile hike before we started that climb. But it was a nice one...

    Failing to Backpack in the Tetons

    7/26-29/15 Back in the spring, my friend Richard broached the idea of backpacking in the Tetons. I said I'd be down if I could get the time off. When the idea came to include summitting South Teton, I was more down. And voila it worked out that I could have a long weekend for the trip. So...

    Teton Crest Trail July 13th-17th 2015

    I usually do at least one multi-day backpacking trip with my wife and a friend or two. This year turned out to be a little different. After making the Teton Crest Trail reservations my wife and I found out that we were expecting twins in October. With this in mind she, of course, would not be...

    Grand Teton's Moose Basin: Glacier Peak, Talus Lake, Doane Peak, Ranger Peak. Part 1

    Back in 2008, a backcountry ranger in Grand Teton National Park told me about an area in the park's northern section, Moose Basin. He said the mountains, lakes, and scenery around the basin, and south to Paintbrush Canyon, was spectacular country. And there were no trails through there. He...

    Teton Wilderness, Absaroka's, Brooks Lake, Cub Creek Backpack Loop

    I did this 3 day backpacking trip back in July. I figured I would post a report in light of the recent bear attack that happened somewhere in the Cub Creek drainage a few weeks ago. But on this trip, horses would create more problems than bears. Trip map can be found here...
