Mt. Nebo Wilderness


The view that captured my attention

Mt. Nebo, highest peak in the Wasatch at 11,928'. I'm not sure how anybody can drive past this mountain without wanting for it's summit.

Wild Yellowstone



Lisa and I keep a bucket list. On that list is a trip that has been very idealistic to me. I never really thought it'd happen. The reason that it's on our list is because I've read that it's a great place to see Grizzly bears, and hear the Wolves. I've also read that it's as wild now, as it ever was, thanks to well over a century of preservation by the National Park Service.

Alta-Toquima Wilderness

Alta-Toquima Wilderness in central Nevada has been on our bucket list for a good while. I guess it was on the list for a bunch of reasons; it's remote as hell, it's high altitude, there's some cool archeology, it's a designated wilderness, the aspen trees are always a plus, and it just looks cool on the map, and from the big valleys below.

San Rafael Swell: Mexican Mt. Wilderness

I've been thinking about what to name a loop like this and can't come up with anything that makes any sense so that's fine.
