I rode from Boise to Pinedale on my motorcycle through some rain and ended up making it to Wyoming some time around midnight just about the coldest and wettest i've ever been. I got out my sleeping...

    Wind Rivers - 2014 - Part 2

    Day 5 – Sunny in the morning but the weather report was bad. Plan change number ? We needed a LONG day of GOOD weather to make it over Blaurock Pass (up and down about 2500 ft vertical) and about 4 miles. Not to happen with the forecast. We decided to head south over Bloody Hell Pass and the...

    Doug and Anita Tour 2014 Wind River Range Wyoming Part 2 It was a beautiful clear night, I know because Anita was outside in the middle of the night, doing whatever girls do in the middle night and she told me so. So I stuck my head outside to check out the beautiful display of stars. Clear...

    Wind River Range. D&A TOUR 2014 - Part 1

    Doug and Anita Tour 2014 Wind River Range Wyoming Part 1 The drive out was fun. The anticipation always adds to that. We rented a car to avoid the wear of 3000 miles on ours. We had a Ford Focus and it got 37 mpg. Sweet! Stopped at Wall Drug we did our part to keep them in business. Anita...

    Cirque Of The Towers

    *Most of these pictures are iPhone pics. Not my usual carefully composed tripod shots with a DSLR, so lower your expectations here. A while back I went to Cirque Of the Towers with my friend Taylor. We left on Pioneer Day, the 24th. It was basically 4 days and 3 nights, with much of Thursday...

    Wind Rivers, Sept. 2013

    The rattling wagon crested a gentle hill on the sage-dotted badlands of western Wyoming, somewhere along the lonely 50 miles separating Evanston and Kemmerer. Ahead on the horizon, red tail lights illuminated on the backside of a black fleck. Another car, northbound, ahead of us. It slowed and...

    Wind River Range - August 2013

    As far as a good TR, @HomerJ posted a good one from our trip ( http://backcountrypost.com/forum/threads/wind-rivers-big-sandy.2437/ ). I will add more photos from our trip. Due to the weather that was going to hit the Wind Rivers we decided on the Big Sandy area just to be safe, if we had to...

    This is the second part of a 2-part trip report covering my 6-day trip backpacking from Green River Lakes to Elkhart Park. See part 1 here.

    Green River Lakes to Jean Lakes

    As with many of my trips, I started dreaming about this one during the cold winter months of 2012. Laid up with a bad knee from a surgery gone terribly wrong, unable to even walk without crutches, I poured over maps and scoured the internet making plans. I'd been into the Winds a handful of...

    9 Days Solo Wind River Range Washakie Pass, Grave Lake, Hailey Pass Loop.

    On August 26th I set out on a 9 day solo trip on the Washakie Pass / Grave Lake / Hailey Pass loop. The goal was not rack up a large number of miles or attempt to see all of the Winds in a short period, but rather spend some time admiring the scenery, fishing, and relaxing. I accomplished all...

    Wind Rivers Traverse

    I got an idea to hike the Highline trail in Wind Rivers after last year's Gannett Peak hike via Tourist Creek. When it finally came to choosing a route, I ended up planning a bit more strenuous and off trail hike mapped here: http://www.trimbleoutdoors.com/ViewTrip/37344 (except I wanted to...

    Wind Rivers - Big Sandy

    For our yearly Wind River trip @Antlerking, Travis and I decided to go into Big Sandy. This would be my 3rd time into this area, previous times being 2008 and 2009. I usually don't like going back to the same location as there are too many places to see, but this year we had planned to hike up...

    Atlantic Canyon, Wind Rivers

    In late July, I made my way back out to the Winds to check out Atlantic Canyon - a pretty untravelled area in the southern winds that had been on my list for a while. @Ndheiner had gone up a few days ahead of us to do a bit of car camping and kayaking in the lakes on the Louis Lake Road...
