Scott and I went on the most fantastic backpacking trip last week. It was up in the Wind River Mountain Range in Wyoming. It was a pretty rigorous 8 mile hike to the most beautiful lake at sits at about 10,000 feet. I will let the pictures speak for themselves..
|The view hiking in....it was breathtaking!|
|Taking a break after a major climb|
|Poor Scott! His knees had just had it. When we got to the outlet (where the lake drains down the mountain) he soaked them for a minute. But boy of boy is that water was cold! We still had another two miles or so until camp.|
|There were a TON of big fish in this lake. Oh how I love trout...especially when it is this fresh!|
We went for a little adventure of our own on the second day while everyone else fished. We wanted to get a picture...it took a few tries before we got it right!
|Second try...almost there|
|Hiking out...we just finished a grueling 800 ft climb up some switch backs.|
|Katy wasn't thrilled...|
It was a terrific trip! I was so grateful to my sister-in-law Melissa for watching the kids. We had a great time and I can't wait for the next adventure!
