Fred Pflughoft was born in Wichita, Kansas, raised in western Washington at the foot of Mt. Rainier and moved to Pinedale, Wyoming in 1996 to work at the Great Outdoor Shop and pursue his dream of becoming a professional photographer. After having published over thirty books featuring his photography he has settled in to the rhythm of life here in Pinedale and focus’ mainly on photographing his own projects and helping others get in to the backcountry that he first began to explore in 1981. With over fifty trips in to the heart of the Wind River Range he has a unique knowledge of the many wonders this very special place has to offer and can help you plan your next great adventure. An interesting side-note is that unlike his fellow worker Davis who sometimes pretends to be color blind, he really is red-green color blind..
