The Winds
« on: April 24, 2016, 09:02:16 PM »
Hi all.  Happy spring.  I'm sure everyone is anxious to get into the backcountry.  I'm hoping to take a trip into the Wind River range in August and was wondering if anyone would be willing to provide some suggestions.  Its challenging to know where to start in such a large area.  I've kind of been looking at the Fitzpatrick Wilderness.  I'd like to keep it around 30 miles or less round trip and get into some Goldens.  Huge fish are less of a priority then scenery and relative solitude.  Any recommendations or a PM would be much appreciated, even if its just a general area.  Thanks!

Go mid to late August and you'll miss the bugs.  The lakes with the best Goldens are like 30 miles 1-way.
