    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...

    Wind River Range. D&A TOUR 2014 - Part 2

    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...

    The Meaning of Life @ 13,167 feet

    Recently I hiked to the top of Cloud Peak with my dad, David Frahm and a family friend, John Harrington. After my returning to the desert of Southern Utah, my dad sent my sisters and I publications from the WY Daily News from those who had also reached Cloud Peak’s summit. Some of the stories...

    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...

    Summer in the CPW- The Final Tour

    The beginning of September marked the end of guaranteed work for my summer in the Cloud Peak Wilderness. My final tour was to be on the eastern side and the weather was forecast to be as awesome (sarcasm) as it was last time I was in this area. Changes in scheduling shortened my plans but...

    Summer in the CPW- Tour 7 North End

    It was slated to be a crazy weekend. A big cold front was to sweep through Wyoming, dumping rain, dropping temps and possibly laying the first snow of the season in the high country. This in mind... I made the choice to backpack far out instead of dayhike for my second trip to the northern end...

    Again I found myself scheduled to patrol the infamous west zone of the Cloud Peak Wilderness. The first time I went here the trip was four days of winter trying to hold on into July. The second, the visitor use was picking up, Cloud Peak had just become hikeable, and I ran into 50+ people in...

    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...

    A Long Weekend in Glacier NP- Part 2

    Sorry for how long this one is. I tried to whittle down my pictures to the best but Glacier provides too many "bests." With my family and friends headed home I was left to occupy more time in Montana. I had several half formulated plans to spend a couple days: day hike in the Bob Marshall...

    After a few adventuresome "weekend" days I finally have some interweb to share more summer goodness. The weekend fun will pop up in another TR soon. So a while ago now (August 1st) I started my fifth tour in the Cloud Peak Wilderness. I'd made the full rotation of our wilderness schedule and...

    Summer in the CPW- Tour 4 North End

    After a month of patrolling my time finally came to venture to the northern end of the Cloud Peak Wilderness. While technically a part of other ranger districts, because the CPW is managed as a whole unit we wilderness rangers get to patrol up there. With only a few trailheads, most accessed...

    Summer in the CPW- Tour 3 West Side

    After hanging out in the heat of Utah for a few days it was time to return to my mountains. I was slated to spend six days on the west side. My first tour in this area was a bit rough, rainy, snowy, thundery, windy. This one was much nicer. Day 1- 7/16 The first day of my tour I was joined...
