YET ANOTHER BASIN

My goal this summer was to spend most of my time backpacking and hiking my home range. So far, I am thankful to have been able to walk an inordinate amount of time and miles already in the Wyoming wilderness. This past week was no different.

I chose a really difficult loop that was 80% off trail navigation. I got to see countless lakes I have never visited previously, and a whole new basin. Waterfalls, granite monoliths, and miles of difficult terrain unfolded before me.

  

 

The weather was lovely, and the mosquitos are getting to be manageable at this point in the season.

 

 

And the wildflowers are still going off!

 

Several new peaks to fall in love with.

 

 

  

All in all, it was a very difficult hike, due to the massive elevation gains and losses, dangerous boulder fields at steep pitch, and miles of felled trees. I was so ready to be done the last day, and not sure I would do the hike again… but I am so glad I did it. I was able to see some of the most spectacular wilderness, AND I didn’t see a soul for four days! Unfortunately, that is becoming less common in these mountains these days.
