Re: Great shot

Thank you, and nice way of correcting me. I never had a topo map of the area and had to rely on a visitor's map, and I always felt a little uncertain about the Aberdeen designation.

That is a wonderful place we were up there in 2005 did a full moon ice climbs on Lake Louise falls under a full moon at two thirty am had the whole place to ourselves was a wonderful way to enjoy a Canadian full moon. Hope you have or if you have not yet made it to the Wind River Mountains of Wyoming sounds like your kind of place for adventure . Good luck with your boy in the mountains and outdoor adventures From the ice man Jerry

Re: Great shot

Thank you, Jerry. In 2001, I spent about a week and a half in the Winds, with the focus being on the Glacier Trail all the way to Dinwoody Glacier and on the loop over Hailey and Washakie Passes, which gave me the chance to climb Washakie, Bernard, and Pyramid. I was all alone the entire time, and the experience was one of the best I've ever had. My favorite range in Wyoming, though, is the Absarokas, though I'd have to almost write a book to explain why.

Re: Great shot

No, although the presence of grizzlies almost anywhere in that range is a big part of the appeal for me-- any range that is so wild as to host healthy populations of grizzlies qualifies as true mountain wilderness for me, and it's the wilderness ranges that I love above all others. It's a thrill to me every time I see a grizzly in the backcountry, though it wasn't quite so thrilling last summer when I found fresh tracks on my own one morning!

I know they're back in the Winds now, but not as extensively as they are in the Absarokas.
