Walking Wild Wyoming

The last time my father, brother and I were in Wyoming was in 1987. Now, nearly 30 years later, the three of us will spend the first third of August backpacking the mountains of Wyoming.

After some time in Arizona and Utah, we’ll cross into Wyoming and start our trek at Big Sandy Trailhead. Our adventure will take us through Wind River mountain range, the Cirque of the Towers, Jackass Pass, Pyramid Lake, Maes Lake, Valentine Lake, Lizard Head Meadow, and the Continental Divide. The hike begins at over 9,000 feet above sea level, and will take us above the 10,000 mark.

We’ll be carrying everything we need on our backs—tents, clothes, food, gear … bear spray. Hopefully we’ll avoid the grizzlies, and the scenery will be easier on the eye than the packs are on the back.
