Wind River Range backpacking partner in August?

by tdkehoe » Tue Jul 24, 2018 5:05 pm

I'm hoping to do a week-long backpacking trip in the Wind River Range in August. I can go any time in August. I don't do climbing or glaciers. I'd like to do Nancy Pallister's Route #40, Tourist and Wells Creeks, in the northwest part of the range, under Gannett Peak. Route #46, Northern Winds Trans-Divide North, looks awesome but ten days may be too much. My goal is to shoot pictures of the high massif around Gannett Peak. I'm open to other routes. Last year we summited Downs Mountain (13,350') for the eclipse, in a five-day hike from Torrey Creek to Dinwoody Creek and Downs Fork and exiting via Bomber Lake.
