    Roaming the Wind Rivers, September 2022

    Spent September in the Wind Rivers: 10 days with girlfriend, 10 with nephew and last 10 solo. About 100 miles with 3 backpacks and a few day hikes. Rough start. Girlfriend's flight to Jackson was delayed 12 hours. I'd flown to Salt Lake the day before. Picked her up at 10:30pm, got into Lander...

    Wind River Range Sept 2021 (part 1)

    9/1 - 9/5/21 (4 nights) 2021 Bag Nights: 24 I drove up from Colorado to the Scab Creek Trailhead. The weather forecast said 50% chance of thunderstorms for the next couple of days. There were waves of rain on the highway, but everything looked good as I got closer to the trailhead. I got my...

    WRHR - Day 7: Beaver Park to Green River Lakes

    All good things come to an end. Today was our last day and it was set up to be less dramatic, mostly through a long green tunnel to our exit, or was it? Thursday - July 29, 2021 Day 7: Beaver...

    WRHR: Day 4 - Halls Lake to Camp Lake

    A whole lot of cross-country route-finding, a walk across Europe, followed by two more passes would take us through Day 4 along this Wind River high route. Monday - July 26, 2021 MILES: 13 | GAIN: 2,717 ft Another blissful, cozy, and comfy sleep. Another morning waking...

    WRHR: Day 3 - 'Desolation Valley' to Halls Lake

    Two passes with a whole lot of off-trail and cross-country navigation, lots of talus hopping, and some bushwhacking would set the stage for Day Three. After some convincing at the urgent request of @Bob, I now present to all of you fellow BCP friends: DAY THREE. ;) Sunday - July 25, 2021...

    The Wind River High Route. Another big bucket list item gets checked off as @Blake Merrell and I set off to complete the biggest and most challenging trip to date for either of us... This trip became another dream come true that started when Blake reached out and asked if I wanted to join up...

    Winds: Aug 28-Sep 19, 2021

    Finally got around to writing up last year's Wind's trip. Bob already posted the Lee L loop so this will have just a few pics from that part. Trip started badly. Delayed flight into MSP caused me to miss a connection. I purposely booked the flight to have a 2 hr layover, but the airline...

    Northern Wind River Traverse - September 2021

    This was a fantastic trip and finally got me up into a section of the Winds I'd been looking to visit for years. Originally planned as a loop from Green River Lakes TH, conditions/conditioning necessitated some adjustments that resulted in a one-way trip from Green River Lakes to the Glacier...

    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...
