Bridger Wilderness - July, 2005

     After a brief stop in Yellowstone National Park, where we were fortunate to observe an immature Bald Eagle struggling to carry a fish caught by one of its parents and a family of trumpeter swans, we spent ten nights on a loop backpacking trip from Elkhart Park near Pinedale, WY. While readying our equipment for the outing, we encountered a gorgeous American Kestrel on an old snag above Fremont Lake.

     Besides spectacular mountains and hundreds of lakes throughout the area,  wildflowers were especially beautiful this year, including Indian Paintbrush and Columbine in a variety of colors, Tansy Asters, and Marsh Marigolds. Close-ups of tundra flowers employing wide depth of field to capture mountainous vistas show the variety of flower species, including Alpine Clover and and an Elephant Head stalk that appears to be larger than the viewer. Insects, including large dragonflies and spectacular Tiger Swallowtails, and, unfortunately, myriads of mosquitoes, abound.
