Wyoming Road Trip Adventure

August 2009

Teton mountain range of Wyoming

Wyoming State Line

This would be the ultimate in adventure road trips.  On the agenda: Hiking and climbing in the Teton area, the Big Horns Jeep Jamboree, fly fishing, and climbing on Devil's Tower.  We spent fifteen days on the road in our RV and with Scout.  When it was all over, we saw and did a lot of new things, met many new friends, and came away with a new-found respect for what the great state of Wyoming can offer the adventure seeker.

First on the agenda was the Mt. Leidy highlands and a climb of Mt. Leidy.  The rewards: lots of wildlife and a great view of the Teton range.

On the way, a huge moose greeted us near the road.  Earlier that morning, a large herd of elk crossed the road in front of us.

Alan and Scout check out the view of the Teton mountain range.

Scout on alert near Leidy Lake in the Mt. Leidy Highlands.  We didn't see another person the entire day.

The next day, Jackie hikes up from Goodwin Lake headed toward the summit of Jackson Peak in the Gros Ventre mountain range.

A couple of days later, we enjoyed the hundreds of miles of Jeep roads in the Big Horn mountains.  Bear lodge Resort in the Big Horns is the place to stay if you ever go there.

After the Big Horn Mountains, it was all about the fishing.  Alan catches a 17-inch rainbow.

Jackie fly fishes with guide Paul Wallop of The Guide Shack fishing guides.

Alan catches a pan-size rainbow in the mountain stream.  We learned and fished all day and caught about six trout.  A great day!

After fishing, we headed over to Devil's Tower.  Jackie hikes the approach to the base of the tower.

Climbing on Devils Tower.  The tower is 5112 ft and you may remember our previous climb of Devils Tower in 2003.

Devils Tower is a spiritual place for not only climbers, but native americans and many others.

We would like to express our appreciation for the sponsors on this trip:
