Yes, I know these Weekly Image Rich Ruh (WIRR) shots appear to be somewhat random chronologically.  I had a productive evening at the computer, however, and I finished my cataloging of shots from our backpack to the Wind Rivers.  After all the filtering, sorting, and editing, there are still over 300 photos that made the cut.  At some point I’ll post a few more of these.  Going forward, the WIRR shots should be in order.  And yes, I’m 4 weeks behind.

 

It was pretty hard to pick a favorite from so many shots.  I ended up selecting one that summed up the Wind Rivers for me.  This was from day four of our trip, on an off-trail hike.  Pronghorn and Dragon Head peaks loom over us on the right as we climbed up to a mountain pass.  Below us Lee Lake and Middle Fork Lake.  We spent most of the day off-trail and above-tree line.  We had this entire, enormous alpine basin to ourselves.
