hike wyoming

Star trails over my campsite in the Snowy Range of Wyoming.  This was a wonderfully peaceful and calm night where I decided to take an easy one night backpack trip into the wild.  Just before heading to bed, I set up the camera and left the shutter open all night long.

I found this composition in the backcountry of the Snowy Range a few years ago, but I had to return this summer with better skies. This unnamed peak almost glows in the predawn light of late summer, and this particular pond reflects the scene perfectly. There’s literally hundreds of lakes in this small mountain range which leaves a lot more exploring to do!
