This trip was absolutely incredible, we started off at the Brooks Lake trailhead and finished at the Angles trailhead near Togwotee lodge. We did this roughly 35 miles over 4 days and saw some of the most incredible scenery we’ve ever seen. This is absolutely wild and just untouched country in here. The forest is so thick in areas you literally have no visibility on the trail and at one point went on like that for over three miles. We stumbled upon a large grizzly as we reached the top of a hill along the the Buffalo Fork, we were making lots of noise, but the roar of the river, wind blowing against us and dense brush put us virtually face to face, probably 30 yards away or less. He kind of tilted his head, looked incredibly annoyed at us and ran a short distance before turning around looking at us again and then casually walked off. The encounter was both terrifying and amazing, but fortunately for us ended up well. All in all this experience was what we hoped for and so much more. We saw tons of wildlife, beautiful mountains and rivers and just felt blessed to be able to see such beauty.
