I love the frosty mornings of fall!
This month's calendar shot was a shrub in our backyard, each leaf individually frosted. Yet another iPhone image.

Dipper Lake Backpack

On July 4th weekend, our family, along with our friend Kevin, went on a backpacking trip. We went to Dipper Lake in the Snowy Range of Wyoming. The trip there was on a 4WD drive road, which was a little unique. We went as far as the Subaru would allow and then walked the rest of the way.

We had a nice campsite on the shore of Dipper Lake. The lake was home to a bald eagle and a spectacular flock of mountain bluebirds. We had four separate thunderstorms pass through, but after the first one we were in our tents or just arriving at the car.

On the second day, Kevin and I climbed Medicine Bow Peak. We were not sure we were going to make it there until the end, but we kept pushing ourselves. Clouds were gathering, so we kept up a good pace.

The hike out was nicer as most of the ATVs had gone home. On the biggest river crossing, Nate crossed a log bridge that had quite a drop to it. We're always amazed at his sure-footedness.
