Alpine walking, Wyoming style
Western Wyoming’s Salt River Range runs from north to south between the Salt and Greys rivers. The Range is wild and untrammeled, offering intrepid explorers ample opportunities for primitive and unconfined recreation.

Over three long days we walked approximately 55 rugged miles: about a third on maintained Forest Service trails, a third along deer trails, and the remaining third trail-less scrambling. In total we ascended over 18,500 feet and rarely dropped below 9,000 feet.
