enjoyed the rest of your report. I liked hearing the stories of your encounters.
and ya, 26 miles in one day over the Pass.... doesn't give you much time to soak it in.

Thanks Tibber! Yeah, 26 miles on any day is rough. I always find that the first day is the hardest, so doing that distance on day one would be even worse.

Really enjoyed your trip report Paul!
Thank you for all the detail, pictures and anecdotes, it was great! Of course I was extra sympathetic about the foot problems and so glad you managed to improve. Your day at Margaret was a favorite to read about, such beautiful water. I will hope that you reach Ipasha next time, would love to see pictures of that.
From the wolves to the “Grizzly Bear”, enjoyed it all, thank you!!
Hope to cross paths again in 2019.
Cheers, Tam

Thanks Tammy! I'm currently researching routes for next year in the Wind River range. I've never been there but bought a few guide books. I think I've been bitten by new bug now, it looks amazing.

Thanks, in some ways I wish I could just do this trip again this year. It's so relaxing out there.
