    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...

    Fox Park-Teton Wilderness Trip

    This summer my wife and I had the incredible opportunity to spend a few weeks in the Fox Park area of the Teton Wilderness exploring and mapping invasive plant species in the GYE. It was by far one of the wildest areas we’ve ever been in and the experience was simply amazing. We started the...

    Lamar River, Mirror Plateau, and Pelican Valley (Yellowstone NP) - mid-September 2020

    I really want to get better about posting some trips reports here, but I figured I should at least post this one and include thanks to @scatman and @Outdoor_Fool for their responses to my earlier thread while planning. My younger brother and I try to get out together at least once a year and...

    A Bechler Trip Cut Short

    October 10-11, 2020 A friend of ours had been planning a Bechler trip for the past year. The plan was to do 3 nights, starting at Lone Star trailhead and finishing at Bechler Ranger Station, making a stop at Mr. Bubbles along the way. That was complicated by the Lone Star Fire that burned in...

    Teton Crest Trail - August 2020

    I realize there is already a good deal of info on the web about the Teton Crest Trail including a few great trip reports on BCP, but in the interest of contributing, I would like to share my experience on the TCT. Maybe a bit of this info will help someone in future planning. If nothing else, a...

    Yellowstone Camping Trip - August 18-20, 2020

    Finally, something we planned that actually worked out. I made the reservation for the Grant campsite in January. We have had to change or cancel a lot of plans, just like everyone else. We decided that as long as we stuck to our plans for Yellowstone and took precautions that we would take...

    Pebble Creek, Yellowstone National Park - August 14, 2020

    I've been heading up to Yellowstone every year since I graduated (yeah right) from college back in 1987. At first, I did the touristy things and a couple of short day hikes. But about three years later, I began to plan and go on backpacking trips every year into the backcountry, usaully doing...

    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...

    Visiting (Part of) the Lake District of Cloud Peak Wilderness

    Ever since @Scott Chandler made several posts about the Cloud Peak Wilderness a few years ago I've been looking at it for hiking trips. For a couple years I have been contemplating a 4 day loop that involves a 10 mile off-trail section across a ridge line above tree line. Last year, an old...

    Day Hike to Cache Lake, Yellowstone NP, August 2019

    Cache Lake was initially not on my radar on my last trip to Yellowstone in August of 2019. But since I only have a whole list of hikes I could do and no specific day assigned to a particular hike, I randomly pick a trail depending on conditions. Cache lake is a small and picturesque lake at the...

    Family's First Visit to Yellowstone

    After my first visit to Yellowstone National Park two years ago as a leader for our local scout trip, I couldn't wait to bring my family back and show off some of the amazing geo-thermal features and waterfalls. Rather than push for it the next year, we opted to wait an additional year, making...

    Garnet Hill Loop, Yellowstone, August 2019

    I'm really slow in working on my pictures due to school, but I finally found some time to write up another trip report from Yellowstone. Garnet Hill is a rarely used trail in the northeastern part of Yellowstone, close to the Tower Junction, and the turn off to Lamar Valley. This hike was on my...

    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 Fall Foray into the Teton Wilderness

    October 11-14, 2019. This may look familiar to you because @scatman already shared his awesome report from the trip. Here I am a few weeks later to tell just about the same story. We had watched the weather for weeks, hoping that we wouldn't get snowed out. I believe Hugh had actually been...

    Day 1 - Got up early on Friday, October 11th to drive up to the Pacific Creek Trailhead in the Teton Wilderness for a four-day backpacking trip up the Whetstone Creek Drainage. @Jackson had graciously decided to join me on this trip (a bout of temporary insanity I think) :) and we arrived at...

    Heart Lake, Yellowstone

    Last winter, I sat in my chair and looked at maps and books and web pages and I made PLANS for hiking this summer. When the time came, I made reservations, and *I* was ready! I had reservations to hike around Shoshone Lake. I knew that Kevin, who had done a Bechler hike with me last year...
