February1, 2010
Sometime after mid afternoon we finally cross the pass and drop down into Wiggins Fork and the color changes abruptly to the more gray colors so prevalent in much of this country. The landscape itself though is no less spectacular. We spot several large herds of elk all congregated in the middle of huge snowfields where they can escape the flies and mosquitos that torment man and beast. This is truely raw wilderness at its best and just a small part of the largest wilderness system in the continental United States. I have since been on a number of trips into this remote area over the years but never as spectacular as the basin we traversed today.
