Ben Kilbourne hikes and packrafts along the Green River in Wyoming.
Wind River backpacking and tenkara fly fishing in the Sawmill Creek drainage and Upper Silas Canyon in Wyoming's Popo Agie Wilderness.
A "high route" is generally defined as an off-trail, above-the-treeline trek that traverses a range of peaks. And this summer, Andrew Skurka completed a doozy of a high route in Wyoming's Wind River range - 100 miles and 60,000 feet of elevation gain.
Notes from an eleven-day Wind River backpacking trip via a high route adjacent to the crest of between Spider Lake and Flagstone Lake.
