Lazy day

Rob and I explored a couple of lakes not far from his house earlier this week...lovely they were

Hike to Hilgard Basin

I took a hike to Hilgard Basin last week, and a detour up Sentinal Peak along the way. Something like 16-18 miles, gorgeous views. As usual, though, there isn't a lot of order to these pics.

The Ultimate West Yellowstone Experience

Some of you have already seen these, but here are some pics a fellow tosser sent of one of our frisbee nights in West. Hopefully she'll send me more!

I guess I was trying to slow down...or hand jive?

I'll take that thank you

Biking the Bridgers

I recommend checking these out in reverse order--I published them backwards. This was a ride I did in the Bridger range a week ago...I really don't know how many miles, but it was a lot and it took me 7-odd hours. I had people offering me food towards the end...awesome day.

I don't think this one was too keen on me...she kept walking at me with her pointy horns

Backpacking in the Beartooths

Slowly but surely I'm tending to my updates! Here are some shots from a backpacking trip I did with friend Jason back around the 4th of July. We hiked up (did I mention UP?) into the Beartooth Wilderness NW of Yellowstone to an alpine lake plateau and some of the oldest rocks in the world. Sweet.
