Wind River Range, Wyoming – September 2012

The Wind River Range is a high plateau studded with granite domes, slabs and crags; sprinkled with hundreds of crystal clear lakes; and blessed with some of the most wide-open vistas anyone could hope to walk.  Our group of companions experienced a highlight reel of the best the range has to offer to a backpacker, following the Highline and then the Fremont trails for 12 days and 100 miles from the north end of the range at Green River Lakes to their southern end at Big Sandy.  Along the way we visited and explored Titcomb Basin, and climbed east over the Divide and around to Cirque of the Towers.  This is a trip not to be missed!  I hope you enjoy the two stories to follow – they describe our route, the things we saw, and include some of our photos.  Have fun!
