Overview

Well, folks, July is moving along fast! All trails are open and in great condition, so the main focus now is to get miles and avoid those mosquitoes for a few more weeks.

There is nothing really major to report this week, so I'd really like to talk about "leave no trace" ethics. One thing that is very special about the Winds is that most places visited in the range give you this feeling that you are one of the first people to ever see it. Keeping it that way takes very little effort: pack out everything you pack in and respect wildlife, other hikers, and the mountains themselves. Major extra credit points for picking up any trash you see. Together, we can keep this range the way it should be.
The snowline is hanging around 11,500 FT, so all major passes and peaks are accessible.

Gannett is still holding snow, and the snow bridge is in play. The climbing conditions for the next week or so look ideal. Looking at the weather for the next week in the range, we will have 80s during the day and 40s at night with little to no moisture. If you have always wanted to summit and you have some sick days, you might want to look into it. If you have summitted this year, we would love to see some photos and hear about the trip. I might even use your photo for the next trail report!

The Green River Rendezvous is happening in Pinedale this weekend with rodeos, farmer's markets, and a parade happening in town among other events going on. For more information please visit www.pinedaleonline.com.
