Backpacking

 

One of my favorite places to go backpacking is the Wind River Wilderness in central Wyoming.  Here are some pictures from a prior trip.  I have kept the pictures large so they will take some time to load.

Yes, there are bears.  This particular one spent about twelve hours harassing our camp.
