The first week of September was spent up in Wyoming.   We first visited Jon, Dawn, AJ and Wyatt up at their hunting camp in SW Wyoming.   John was bow hunting for moose.   We saw lots of wildlife and saw some great country.

From there we headed to northwest Wyoming.  We spent 3 nights camping in Grand Teton National Park.  Below is a the first hint of sunrise hitting that impressive range.

There are some dude ranches in the park and some horse herds to go along with them.

After a great few days we headed further north to the incomparable Yellowstone National Park.  We love Yellowstone.  Lots of photographic opportunites with geysers, wildlife, mountains, and other cool geologic features.

Yellowstones wildlife is plentiful.  Below is a coyote.  We hoped to see glimses of the famed wolf packs but had to settle for hearing a lonely howl way off in the distance.

We drove thru the Tetons on the way home.  Below is the view at Snake River Overlook.

September continued to be a busy month.  Chris competed in his first triathlon in 10 years.  Then we enjoyed indian summer by going backpacking on the west side of the Sangre De Cristos.  This turned out to be a steller trip.  The leaves were prime and the best in a few years.

Sange De Cristo Fall Colors

This is our favorite time of the year to hike.   Sunny, warm(not too hot) and no bugs.  Below is a nice grove of rare red aspen along one of the trails.

Our campsite was perfect.  It glowed with the leaves and was very peaceful.

Chris spent several weekends helping Randy build his small cabin in the old ghost town of Fulford.  This involved hewing the logs, setting them by hand and doing various other tasks.  Great workout! This little cabin/shed will be livable while Randy and Sandy restore an 1880s cabin in the front of the property in the years to come.
