    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 6 - Titcomb Basin to Beaver Park

    Our first rain after being out for 5 days, and then a whole bunch more would highlight Day 6 along the Wind River High Route. Wednesday - July 28, 2021 Day 6: Titcomb Basin to Beaver Park MILES...

    Bonneville Pass - August 2021

    Found these pics from a nice day hike we did this past summer up above Bonneville Pass just outside the Teton Wilderness boundary. It’s definitely beautiful country up there.

    Yellowstone - Through the Heart of the Park

    Day 1. I awoke in the cabin at the Headwaters Lodge, headed over for breakfast, and walked into a big group of people in the lobby. Overhearing the conversations, the road into the Park was closed at the S Entrance due to the snow from the previous day and last night. Some people that I had met...

    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...

    Week-long Ramble Through Southern Yellowstone

    This trip has been on the back burner for a few years and I made a few adjustments before submitting my permit application in July. As I submitted the application relatively late, the Backcountry office called and let me know that a few campsites I requested were not available. She suggested...

    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...

    WRHR: Day 2 - Cirque of the Towers to 'Desolation Valley'

    For Day 2 along this Wind River High Route, we aim for a 2nd bucket list destination in as many days: Desolation Valley... Saturday - July 24, 2021 Day 2: Cirque of the Towers to Desolation Valley MILES: 11.5 | GAIN: 2,275 ft Surprisingly, it never got real cold through the first night, even...

    Archive: Mt Moran, Sail and Climb

    The inspiration for this trip came from Leigh Ortenburger's book, A Climbers Guide to the Tetons. Having spent a couple of summers working in YNP, I had managed to learn enough climbing to find the easiest ways up Grand, Middle and South Tetons. Ortenburgers condensed pocket size book had been...

    Yellowstone's Hayden Valley in a Day -- September 17 2021

    To cap off a mid-September 2021 visit to Yellowstone @scatman , @wsp_scott, and I challenged ourselves with a 20ish mile hike thru the Heart of Yellowstone's Hayden Valley. Hugh and I started the week with a hike to Aster Lake and the upper reaches of Witch Creek. A day later Scott joined us...

    WRHR: Day 1 - Big Sandy to Cirque of the Towers

    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...

    Family trip to Grand Teton and Yellowstone

    About a year ago I asked for Yellowstone advice (https://backcountrypost.com/threads/yellowstone-family-trip-planning.9533/) and a number of you were very helpful. We were able to get reservations in both parks so there wasn't as much driving. I did not really want to go to Grand Teton, but it...

    Overnight at Ice Lake, Yellowstone

    This was my second to last backcountry night of the season. Ice Lake Is really, *really* close to the road. There are three sites. One is about two miles in, nicely appointed, and features wind. I swear, in July the wind chill at that site is 10*. There'a a site that's about 3/4 of a mile in...

    Yellowstone Snake River weekend

    I had reservations for the Snake River Hot Springs site in Yellowstone, for Labor Day weekend. I invited people involved with the inaugural Wyoming Naturalist Program class (I’m in the class), and had 5 people join me. There was one instructor, two of her friends, and another classmate and her...

    A Successful Return to the Bechler

    Some of you may remember that last year, I had what was supposed to be a 3-night trip in the Bechler area that got cut short due to heavy rain and poor site selection for our tents. As we hiked out on that trip, we committed to try again the next year. So we did, and it was a great success. Here...

    Yellowstone's Shoshone Lake, Ouzel Creek, and Three Rivers Junction -- September 13-16 2021

    Well, @scatman posted his version of this trip, now its my turn. :) After our warm up hike to Aster Lake the day before Hugh and I would be meeting @wsp_scott by a deadline of 9AM at Yellowstone's Lone Star Trailhead. We drove over from the Old Faithful area a bit early and found Scott...

    FIRST-TIMER'S YELLOWSTONE TRIP

    A month ago I posted here asking for feedback on my concerns about visiting YNP. The consensus from the group was that even though I might not love it I should go and see it at least once. That was good advice and I'm glad we went. We spent two and a half days there and were able to hit just...

    Hayden Valley Loop - Yellowstone National Park - September 17, 2021

    Finishing off my third Pop-tart, I opened the door of the car to a chilling 17 degree morning at the pullout near Trout Creek in Hayden Valley. As I try to bend my cold knees to limber them up a tad, I gaze to the west amazed that this will be my seventh substantial hike into Hayden Valley over...

    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...
