LOCATION PEEK // HIDDEN WYOMING

Many of you will undoubtedly know the location of which I am about to showcase. It’s not exactly a secret. However, it is a little less well known than many other places, and I am more and more convinced with each passing day that we must start guarding these places a little bit better.

The more Ellen and I travel, the more we are seeing many of our sacred places being desecrated. So, I will continue to educate folks as best I can on the outdoor etiquette I’ve learned over the years… as well as keeping our special places a bit more secret. Honestly, it’s much more enjoyable to stumble on some of these places anyway, or to learn about them from a local you chatted up over a beer. I miss those days, anyway.

So heres my newest subject of obsession… a Wyoming mountain range of unparalleled beauty.

I had the pleasure of exploring a small section of these mountains for the last week, and I was blown away at the opportunities. This is going to require a lot more of my attention moving forward.

I did a fair amount of dirt road driving. Not enough hiking, as the weather was quite moody and rainy.

At times, I was reminded of the Pacific Northwest, among other areas. But I suspect the time of year had a lot to do with it. Late June up here is still very much spring weather. In fact, the roads were so muddy most of the time we were there, four wheel drive was absolutely necessary.

But if you’ve been following along a while, you know that I love dramatic weather. It can be hit or miss, sure, but when the beam of light hits, the storm clears briefly, the fog rolls in just so… you get the chance for magic. And if you happen to be in a magical place such as this when the magic hits… ahhhhh.

Thats what I live for.
