Wyoming’s (very) Snowy Range

We just made a trip over the 4th to the Snowy Range in Wyoming’s Medicine Bow National Forest.The Snowies remain one of my favorite places from my early years in the West and my very first backpacking trip with Marla. This little range packs a lot of beauty and diversity into a small package.

    1. Thanks Cloudman! It was a lot of fun picking out smaller details withg my super-sharp and ancient 80-200 lens. I’d love to go back in a few weeks when flowers are bursting from the tundra.
