    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...

    Off Trail to Yellowstone's Aster Lake and Upper Witch Creek -- September 13, 2021

    In September 2020 @scatman and I ventured to Yellowstone's Heart Lake for three backcountry nights. One of the ideas for/during that trip was to hike up Witch Creek to Aster Lake then back to the trail on the way out. That route never materialized so I promised Hugh that if he let me hang out...

    I spent eleven days in Yellowstone in order to complete two back-to-back, four day backpacking trips, along with a couple of nifty day hikes thrown in for good measure. This report is about my first trip for four days into the Gneiss Creek area of the Park. Day 1 - 4.3 miles to campsite WA1...

    Southern Absaroka Loop (Teton Wilderness) - August 2021

    I'd been looking forward to this trip for quite a while and it was great to finally get out there and do it. The goal was primarily just to get a good look at a large portion of the Teton Wilderness and spend time in a variety of environments/elevations - it was an excellent trip in that regard...

    Snake River Lollipop Loop - Yellowstone National Park - August 8, 2021

    Last week, I completed a six day, approximately 44 mile backpacking trip through the south central portion of Yellowstone National Park. This trip included my wife and daughter, along with @Artemus, and my friend Quin, who joined us on our second day of the trip. The route was a lollipop loop...

    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...

    A Greater Yellowstone Loop - 2020

    I know most of us don't really want to relive the debacle that was 2020, but this was actually a highlight of an otherwise terrible year. As spring turned to summer and it became that my planned PCT hike wasn't happening, I made other plans. Those plans involved long-distance hiking, but in a...

    Gros Ventre Wilderness - June 2021

    After returning from Idaho/Wyoming with the family after Memorial Day weekend, we passed through the Gros Ventre Wilderness and stopped for a picnic/playtime for the boys. It reminded me of a trip I'd planned for last year, but ended up replacing with a local option. I'd always intended it for...

    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...
