Bighorns & Beartooths Backpacking, 2008

Ice, boulders, snow...the Beartooths had it all, plus mosquitoes!

Holy cow! What a couple of weeks I had. From summiting Cloud Peak to traversing the Beartooth Plateau off trail, this trip had a little of everything.

Most enjoyable was hiking and having fun with my new, old pal, Ward and my first Canadian friend, Brad. We certainly were not disappointed by the scenery and everyone got along well---even with the Canadian Dude.

There isn't much of a trip report up right now but photos are online and some of the narrative is complete. When will I get it all done? Who knows?

11/19/2008 update:
The Bighorn/Cloud Peak trip report is finally finished which means it only took me about 3.5 months too pull it all together.


Screw the trip report...take me to the photos.
