The Wind Rivers: Green River Lakes & Slide Lake

Headwaters of the Green River | Tuesday – Saturday, August 17-21, 2021

After Diane and I visited the Wind Rivers for the Great American Eclipse in 2017 we decided that we should try to return every other summer to visit somewhere new in the range. Two years ago we came back and hiked to the Cirque of the Towers, so this year I thought it would be a good idea to check out the area around the Green River Lakes and planned a four day backpacking trip for us. Since Canyonlands is the heart of the world to me and I have spent a lot of time exploring along the Green River on the Colorado Plateau, I though it was finally time to visit its headwaters in the Wind Rivers. Lucky for Diane, she had a week off between semesters at school at the same time we try to go in late August, so the timing worked out perfect for us!

Angel’s Landing

Veteran’s Day | Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Tuesday was our last morning in Zion before we had to drive back home and we decided to hike to the top of Angel’s Landing before leaving. After checking out of our hotel, we drove into the park one last time and were one of the first vehicles at The Grotto trailhead. We grabbed our backpacks and started the hike to the top. Although I had my camera with me (as I always do), photography wasn’t really the main objective for this short hike on a clear day like today. I just used it to take a few snapshots along the way.
