At 3:15AM on August 21st, 2011, Ty Draney and I finished a stellar ~75-80 mile adventure run from Green River Lakes to Big Sandy in the Wind River Mountains. I am in awe, yet again, with the beauty of this spectacular range. The original intended route is something I call the Crestline Route. This very rugged route involves a fair bit of off-trail travel, boulder hopping, snow travel, stream crossings, oh and seemingly never-ending rocky trails too! A lightning/rain storm rolled in around 9PM and blasted us for an hour or two so causing us to make an impromptu bivy. We deviated from the intended route for the last ~30 miles because we were running behind schedule and instead opted for the Fremont trail (also the Continental Divide Trail) back to Big Sandy. Ty and I made a great team pulling each other through the highs and lows of this 21hr adventure.
