In mid October I decided to take a trip north to Wyoming to see a bucket list of friends I have not seen in many years. A part of that bucket list was to take a day hike or two into the Snowy Range west of Laramie. First on the list was to hike up to South Gap Lake, which my old MSU roommate and business partner, Ben Parkhurst plus two of his yellow labs, and I did together. During that hike it started to spit snow on us. (The first five photos are from that hike.) The next morning I took a hike around Libby Lake, through a skiff of snow, to where I connected up with the Medicine Bow Peak trail, which I then followed returning to my car. Once in the car, I drove out to Libby Flats where there were a few fine clouds drifting to the north, and then down the front of the Snowies to Lake Marie, snapping a few additional photos along the way. From there, I drove the loop around to Encampment, into Colorado, down through Woods Landing, then back to Laramie. I wanted to do this loop again, as this is the drive that Harold Bergman took me on my first day in Wyoming. I refreshed many fine memories.
