While Montana owns the 'Big Sky Country' slogan, Wyoming gives nothing away to Montana in this department.
Big sky country, Wyoming.
This is the first photo of a photo book of 'Eat' signs across rural America that I was planning to do. The operative word is 'planning'.
Our first campsite after hiking in from the Big Sandy. Diane at Dad's Lake. Our tent is the Early Winters 'Starship', a tent that I designed earlier in the year.
Sunset at Dad's Lake. Our 'Starship' tent provides shelter. I designed this tent by using geodesic principles but tapering the floor plan for more efficient use of space.
Diane, 'hooked' fishes into the evening.
Diane with her big catch.
Diane was generous to let me hold her catch.
A good friend, Jim Walter, called Diane a 'classic beauty'. I agree.
Bill in love with the photographer, Diane.
Can you find the two sheep in this photo? They are peeking out from the rocks about mid way up.
Pyramid Lake with Pyramid Peak to the left. We came for the rumored large Golden Trout and saw them cruising beneath the surface. But they could not be persuaded by lures, flies or bait. Very discouraging.
This is the trip where Diane demonstrated her enthusiasm for fishing.
Spin casting at Pyramid Lake. The big Golden Trout weren't cooperating.
Basque sheep herders were abundant in the Wind River Range in the area around Pyramid Lake that year. Note the single sheep herder and the dog taking charge of the sheep.
