Deep Lake and Haystack Peak

Temple Peak (one my ski hit-list) and Deep Lake in the Wind River Mountains.

I’m back from a fun trip camping at Deep Lake and climbing Haystack Peak in the Wind River Mountains. Now it’s off to SLC for the Summer Outdoor Retailer for a couple of days.

I’m not that hard of a rock climber, but I still like to get out and climb every once and a while. Haystack Peak has more climbing routes on it than any other Wind River Peak, so it was a good objective and location for a quick getaway from the hustle and bustle of Jackson in the summer. I’ve been on top of neighboring Temple Peak before, like in 1996, but I also want to ski it, and almost attempted with a car-to-car mission earlier this summer…but bailed on the adventure because of warming temps. Here are some photos from the trip.

    Temple is also on my hit list. I’m now over in the Teton Valley and guiding fishing. Hope to ski with you this winter… Matt Lloyd

    mark…bugs were manageable…and i think they are winding down. at times they weren’t a problem…other times they were kinda bad…but not outrageous. have fun!
