Backpacking & Fishing in the Snowy Range of Wyoming

We returned from our trip, Backpacking & Fishing in the Snowy Range of Wyoming, on Sunday, August 13 2017.

We saw mostly partly cloudy skies above rolling hills and myriad lakes, some full of huge brook trout. With freshly-picked wild mushrooms and freshly-caught trout, we dined well and fished hard... between naps and campire and general lounging around. We were also treated to the peak of the Perseid Meteor Shower. All in all, a lovely trip. Thanks to Drew for pulling the laboring organizational oar.
