Caldera Tales – Day 1: Trout Lake, Lost Creek Falls, Petrified Tree, & the Lamar Valley

"Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods.

Wyoming Explored: Biking Grand Teton National Park

It still wasn't a bad day,… Continue reading Of Geysers & Waterfalls – Days 7 & 8: Midway Geyser Basin, Jenny Lake, Hidden Falls, Colter’s Bay, and Granite Creek Falls

Wyoming Explored: Browns Peak Circumnavigation

Alpine Lakes Loop11.8 miles Back in September my adventure buddy, Lydia, and I headed up to the Snowies for a late summer season camping adventure. We didn't quite bank on a foot of snow when we arrived to Brooklyn Lake, but we found a spot fairly sheltered from the wind and set up camp, ready… Continue reading Wyoming Explored: Browns Peak Circumnavigation
