    September Day Hike in Yellowstone -- Wrangler Lake and Beyond.

    I was fortunate to spend a week in Yellowstone National Park this past September 15-22, 2018. This year's trip was going to be a bit of a wild card due to the fact that I was bringing three family members with me, none of which had previously crossed the Mississippi much less been to...

    Ice Lake, Yellowstone National Park - September 14, 2018

    This report covers a four day backpacking trip into Ice Lake in Yellowstone National Park, starting on September 14th and running through the 17th. This trip was with three of my old backpacking buddies who are getting a bit long in the tooth and don't get out much anymore. One in particular...

    Wind Rivers, Circling Downs Mountain

    September is arguably the best month for backpacking the western US mountains. Finally this year we managed to get a week off that handily coinciding with a stellar forecast for the Winds. From near Dubois we did a loop circling Downs Mountain (northernmost thirteener on the CD?), crossing the...

    Winds - Pole Creek -> Lester Pass -> Island Lake / Titcomb -> Hobbs

    I did this same route last year (minus the day trip to Titcomb) in reverse on the July 4th weekend and had a COMPLETELY different experience then than I had this past weekend. The trip report for that expedition is here...

    Greybull River July 2018

    My wife and I took a week-long trip up the Greybull River into the southeastern Absarokas the last week of July, 2018. We hiked in two days from the Jack Creek campground/trailhead and camped near the confluence of the Greybull River and Cow Creek. We day-hiked from there for three days and...

    Island Lake/Titcomb Basin in July

    Thought I'd throw up my pics from the trip I did with @Curt and 3 other folks last month. The weather was rainy and cool this morning, so I stayed inside and edited pictures for the first time in a while. Not going to go into too many details since Curt did a fine report that can be found...

    Electric Peak and Sportsman Lake, Yellowstone National Park - August 9, 2018

    @Artemus and his wife Becky graciously invited my family to join them on their backpacking trip across the Gallatin Range in the northwest quadrant of Yellowstone National Park. The trip would include summiting Electric Peak and staying at Sportsman Lake. While my wife was unable to join in, my...

    Teton Crest Trail - August 2018

    Pre Trip I didn't decide to do this trip until after all the permits were gone online, so I showed up at the Moose Visitor Center at about 6 AM and I was the second person in line. I drove up the night before from Farmington, UT and slept in my car in Jackson. I was lucky and was able to get...

    Gros Ventre Wilderness

    This trip took place a couple weeks ago before the Sawtooth trip I posted. I took my wife and 14 yo son around a 34 mile loop in the Gros Ventre Wilderness. I put together a route that starts at the Granite Hot Springs then up Granite Creek and goes over a couple of passes before descending...

    Wind River Range - July 2018

    This was a trip from Elkhart Park to the Titcomb Basin. There have been many posts here for this trip but none recently so I thought I'd add another to the opus. The Titcomb Basin has been on the bucket list for a long time. I made a trip up here several years ago on a long 4 day weekend with...

    Yellowstone - Lonestar into the Upper Bechler and back

    A month or so ago, I asked if anyone wanted to join me for a leisurely trip into the Bechler. It didn't take long before I got a response from Eric and Kevin, and after a few questions, things were set. On the appointed morning we met at the Grant backcountry office and were soon on our way to...

    Plateau Lake and Buffalo Meadows, Yellowstone National Park 7/27 - 7/30

    I had originally intended to hike to Plateau Lake back in the spring of 2015 as part of my off-trail loop around the upper Firehole River Drainage. I had reserved the campsite at Summit Lake for two nights and had hoped to day hike from there to Plateau Lake, which was approximately 13 miles...

    A week along the Continental Divide in Wind River Range

    This was my big adventure for 2017. A full week backpacking the Wind River Range, which I researched thoroughly on this site. The on-trail dates were September 9th-15th, 2017. I tried to get by without writing a trip report, but Nick won't give me advice on my upcoming Teton Crest Trail trip...

    Teton Crest Trail - August 2017

    Last August some friends and I did our first ever backpacking trip in the Tetons. It was such a fun trip! I had been wanting to do the TCT for many years! Because of work schedules and vacations days we were only able to do a 3 day trip. We cheated and took the tram at Teton Village and hiked...

    The Thorofare and the Absaroka Wilderness

    Now for years have been hiking, camping, and wandering in the Thorofare and the Absaroka Mountain Wilderness in Wyoming. For myself the first year I was back in this wild country was several times in the summer of 1982 before the Yellowstone Fires of 1982. Yes there has been changes thru the...

    Southern Winds

    It has been suggested that I post some trip reports so people can get to know me better. Last August I did a loop route in the Southern Winds with my 20 year old son and one of his friends. My son and I have done multiple trips in the Winds but this is the first time we have explored South...

    Absarokas Fun Route - 12 Days of High Adventure

    In August of 2017, I had the opportunity to take the trip of a lifetime - a week and a half in Wyoming's fantastic Absaroka Range. I started at Togwotee Pass and hiked north, ending in Cooke City MT. Note - this is a more "technical" writeup of my trip, with maps, route considerations, and...

    Wind River Range: Chasing Dreams - 15-19 August 2016

    ***Another "I'm new here/catch-up post" from 2016 (posted here Oct. 2017): This was my first real foray into the stunning Wind River Range in Wyoming. The week before this trip I had packed out to Island Lake in a day from Elkhart Park but had to turn back the very next morning because my hiking...

    Lava Creek, Teton Wilderness - October 6, 2017

    I've been taking advantage, weather permitting, of the Columbus Day weekend for a number of years to head up to the Teton Wilderness and get some October backpacking in. These trips tend to be the last of my backpacking for the year, so I always look forward to a short trip before the snow...

    The Southern Winds

    This August trip back to the Winds was all I could hope for and nothing that I expected if that makes any sense. I started planning this trip in May of 2016 and this site with all of you were a huge resource for that and I thank you for all your knowledge and information. The plan was to spend 9...
