The purpose of this photo essay is, in part, to help motivate the reader to leave your favorite social networks behind, and get out their and see and experience such beautiful things for yourself. It does not matter what mode of transport you chose - be it hiking, bicycling, motorcycling, canoeing, kayaking, or even touring in a car. It does not even matter where you go. What matters is that you leave your familiar surroundings with your comfort zone behind, and do something completely different. It's a time of renewal and refreshment for the soul, and once returned you might find yourself a better person for it.

So don't think you have seen what I have seen through these photos. Think instead what you can see by going out there yourself.

Nearing Pinedale, I've punched through the backside of the storm.
