February1, 2010
I really believed that by now I would be able to get out into the country doing what I love to do. Research for my art work. Back in October the Doctor told me that about mid January I would be able to put my full weight on my foot. I guess I thought that meant I would be up and running at that point. Not so. I have gotten to the point that I can put weight on it but only gingerly can I move about on "haphazardly" one crutch. And that is exhausting. I am pretty impatient about how slow this healing process is. With all that in mind I ran across a number of photos I had taken on one of my memorable pack trips about ten years ago that really impressed me and thought it would be great to share it with all my followers of OUTDOOR ADVENTURES. it has been awhile since I have posted to that site and I felt I needed to provide something.
This particular trip is from the crossing of Bear Creek Pass and then going up what we call Kodachrome Basin and into the headwaters of Wiggins Fork NE of Dubois, Wyoming in the Absaroka Wilderness.
We had spent about three days at the head of Bear Creek. Exploring and doing quite a bit of painting in some spectacular country right at timberline. This scene is from above our camp the last evening we were at Bear Creek. The pass we were to take the next morning runs up to the left of these towering peaks.
