    7 Breathtaking Days in the Winds

    Now I know why so many of you rave about the Winds! This trip was breathtaking in so many ways - jaw-dropping eye-candy plus challenging hiking that made me huff and puff more than I would like. I have never seen so many lakes in my life. We had a fabulous trip - gorgeous scenery, great weather...

    Horse Ridge to Mount Febbas (Wind River Range) - July 2021

    I'd put together a little "bonus" Wind River trip when laying out my longer trip coming up this September and wasn't sure when/if I'd get a chance to do it. When my wife/kids ended up going out of town for a long weekend, I figured I should take advantage and see what I could do. It was a...

    NW Wind River Range - late August 2020

    I've only got one more annual trip w/ my brother to post, so I figured I'd start adding some of my solo trips. (For now I'm refraining from posting trip reports w/ anyone but my brother, since the others don't post online and I'm not sure how they'd feel about it - maybe in the future.) So...

    Hailey Pass-Cirque of The Towers loop

    Stuck inside for a few days thanks to snow, figured it would be a good time to write something up about this trip. This was a 5 night trip I did in late July/early August of last year with a couple good friends. This was my first trip to the Winds and I will absolutely be coming back. It was...

    In and Around the Winds, Sept 2020

    Posting the entire trip here, even though there were almost as many day hikes. Sorry for the long preamble but it puts the trip in context. An involved planning process, even before COVID. Talked about my annual trips to Wyoming and the Winds when I joined a local hiking group about 5 yrs ago...

    4 Days In The Winds

    My daughter and I finally made it to the Winds after 8 months of planning. The plane flight into Denver was uneventful as was our ride to Elkhart Park Trail head. We arrived at the trail head around 10:00 after a late dinner in Pinedale. We slept in the car and we both woke up throughout the...

    Backpacking the Winds: From Elkhart TH to Titcomb Basin, July 2018

    Backpacking the Winds: From Elkhart TH to Titcomb Basin, July 2018 When my friend Lisa asked me if I wanted to join her to backpack to Titcomb Basin in the Wind River range, I couldn't say no. This was a trip I wanted to do for years. Despite barely being in shape and with all my lung and...

    A return to the Winds: Sept 12-28, 2019

    First, my apologies as this story pales in comparison to the epic journeys many have posted here. But, thought I'd share it as several on this board and at bpbasecamp helped with the planning. On my 20th year of visiting the area, I was doing it solo again. My nephew bailed a few weeks before...

    Wind River Dreaming | Summer 2019 July 17 - July 29 | Green River Lakes - Elkhart Park

    Day 1: After waiting a bit for the snow cover to thin and firm and a bit more while my job put me on standby, I finally had a fishing buddy drop me off at Green River Lakes at about 4:00. I’d packed ten days of food and fuel as well as my ice axe and crampons. The anticipated route was Tourist -...

    Southern Winds tour 8/23/19 - 8/28/19

    After a whirlwind week of dropping off my oldest at college, I jumped on the plane to SLC from DCA with my gear, while the rest of my family headed back to Maine. As I drove to Big Sandy on Friday I could see lots of lightning that was nearby. I was afraid that I'd be waiting it out in the car...

    A Family Trip in the Winds: Big Sandy and the Cirque

    I finally made it the Big Sandy trail head this summer with my two older kids. This trip was in the making for the 3rd year now. Work has created a road block for the 2 previous years. I finally checked this one off my bucket list this week. We pulled out of Idaho Falls Sunday afternoon because...

    Hailey-Washakie Loop

    July 13-16, 2019 The high snow levels of this past winter and spring, combined with having to study for the bar exam all summer, have made for a summer generally lacking in outdoor exploits for me so far. Thankfully(?), the bar exam is in a week and a half, and after that, I can be free of the...

    Wind River Dreaming | Summer 2014 the first few days July 9 - 14

    The summer of 2014 saw quite a bit of early season snow in the Winds. I delayed my launch a little and chose an easy start on the Pole Creek Trail. Patchy snow in the trail began not far above the trailhead. Generally I avoid the popular spots even though they are very scenic, but early and...

    Wind River Range 2009 "From The Vault"

    As part of my continuing posting of old trips (to keep me busy/out of trouble, and you all possibly entertained) here is what is probably my most epic trip so far. Three of us set out on a mostly off trail route in the northern Wind River Range. It wasn't super long on miles, but was long on...

    Wind Rivers, Circling Downs Mountain

    September is arguably the best month for backpacking the western US mountains. Finally this year we managed to get a week off that handily coinciding with a stellar forecast for the Winds. From near Dubois we did a loop circling Downs Mountain (northernmost thirteener on the CD?), crossing the...
