Lander, WY - July 1






Just crossed most of the Red Desert. Heat up to 105 and no shade w/nothing but sagebrush for miles and miles and miles. Saw one group of wild horses and a million antelope. Also found a tick on me basically every time I looked. Took slightly longer alternate along Sweetwater River. Beautiful oasis, but too bad there were a million horse flies. Looking forward to getting off jeep roads and back on real trail in the Wind rivers. Still the greatest adventure of my life thus far. :)

  2. Hey there!
    Did you get to see Adobe Town? Check out my org's website at www.voiceforthewild.org for more info about the special places in the Red Desert and how to protect them from destruction by oil and gas overkill. Maybe you can meet up with us on one of our conservation tours of the area... Very cool project you're working on.

  3. ¡hola de Costa Rica!
    after two weeks on the proverbial latin american road I have mad respect for your ability to travel lightly, even though I´m in a clime where you sweat through your shirt in about two minutes.
