Our bear bag hanging spot ;) No sign of any bears the whole hike!
Today we did a day hike to where we could see the back of the Cirque of the Towers!
This is after Grant told Leidy she didn't have to be in EVERY picture! It's true, she was always out in front so got in a lot of pics like the one above ;)
As we hiked we could start to see more of the peaks of the Cirque!
We love the mountains!
So pretty! There were lots of willows along the creek that flows from Shadow Lake
Leidy = exhausted. She was quite the trooper!
When we got back to camp we decided not to tough out another FREEZING cold night and packed up to head back to the trailhead. I wasn't so sure about this idea since it was about 9 miles back after we just did 4 on our day hike (keep in mind we were at about 10,000ft and don't do a ton of backpacking except on trips like this ;) But we headed out anyways!
Still going :) and still awesome views!
There's me stopping for a pic looking back where we just came from. This is back by Fish Creek Park where we spent the first night
Leidy and I racing to the trailhead ... almost there almost there ... oh goodness my feet and shoulders hurt ... how are your feet little pup? And the bugs are starting to come out!
Ahh back in the car. We completely wussed out and drove to Pinedale and stayed in a motel! lol! We didn't have any more ambition to set up our tent again and freeze at the trailhead ;) But check out those mountains as we drove away! We'll be back again that's for sure!
