Prepared for the Worst, Providing the Best

We just got back from a week and a half of vacation in what I consider to be one of the most beautiful places in the world: Cloud Peak wilderness in the Bighorn mountains in WY. Clear mountain air, beautiful views, a clear schedule, no heat & humidity, no cell phones, no covidiots, no protests...just hiking, fishing, and camping as far from civilization as we could get.

My oldest son, FIL, and I did an overnight hike to Lost Twin Lakes...absolutely gorgeous, and some great fishing.





Morning view from our overnight camp site:



And because my in-laws were along, my wife and I got to leave the kids with them and take a day hike up to Mistymoon lake, just the two of us. We did an overnight trip there last year, and the scenery is absolutely magnificent:





And a few of the neighbors:

You and me both! If I could find employment, I'd be there.

Beautiful pics. Reminds me of hiking the Pacific Crest Trail in the north Cascades of Washington State. Some of the best memories in my life.

Very pretty. Unfortunately, my current physical condition is such that I can only enjoy it via others' photos.

Yes, the Big Horns are one of our best underrated areas.

Thank you very much for sharing.

Absolutely beautiful.

Would love to go back to Wyoming, again.

Truly a magnificent place.

That's my favorite thing about them...most of the tourist types want to see Yellowstone and the Tetons, so they all go there and leave the Bighorns alone. Plus, the Bighorns are less accessible, so you have to work harder to access the good parts, which also helps keep the traffic down. The last few times we've been out there, it was predominantly locals and a few other out-of-state hikers. This time it was a little busier (I think the covid is driving more people to vacation outdoors), but still not too bad.

That's on my list to do someday (not the whole thing...I'm not that hardcore...but some sections)...I've heard it's fantastic!
