Hello fellow outdoor people,
I was fortunate enough to pull a fantastic trip last week with Trailspace Moderator Gonzan (whom I've backpacked with several times over the last few years) and his friend Jonathon (whom I got know on this trip).
It was an amazing experience with great company and like my trip with Lambertiana last summer, I benefitted from the detailed planning of others and got to turn my brain off for a fabulous trip!
All kudos to Gonzan for a tremendous route plan and overall logistical mastery. Impressive coordination and Well done my friend.
The Teton Range is spectacular and rightfully popular.
The next thing to say is that you have to respect those mountains; the ambient temperatures swung wildly nearly every day (30 - 40 degree variances), serious winds are on tap, clouds blow in white and get dark over the mountains producing various types of precip....great fun overall but it keeps your attention.
Enough talk; straight to the video and pictures.....
I'm not really a fisherman and I learned a great deal from Caleb and Jonathon who were kind and patient enough to help me out. I caught my first mountain lake trout and it was delicious! So orangey and good...mmmm
Camping on Death Canyon Shelf
Gonzan found time to paint.....but it was barely 20 degrees F that morning. That is a dedicated artist.
These horsemen are actually professional guides on the way to pick up some clients for a riding/ camping excursion.
Last trail dinner of the trip enjoyed on a canyon edge with outstanding views.
