Lake Marie, Wyoming

I took a slight detour/adventure trip last weekend while camping at Curt Gowdy State Park in Wyoming. I drove about 1.5 hrs West of our camp spot to the top of the Snowy Range pass, to go fish a little alpine lake I remember from a day-trip with my wife Katherine back in the fall of 1996 or 1997.

Nestled near the top of the Snowy Range Pass, just west of Laramie Wyoming, sits these lakes and the picture below is of Lake Marie. Wow. What a scene! Fishing was pretty good too, catching Rainbows and Brookies on a Parachute BWO.

Finally was able to make it out to a sunflower field and I was lucky to have chosen one close by and that was near peak!

Fetcher Barn in the Smoke

A somewhat-controlled fire broke out on the back side of Hahns Peak and we thought it would make for an excellent moonrise (94% full) on this day of camping at Steamboat Reservoir. We waited and waited for the moon to appear and according to The Photographer’s Ephemeris, we were lined up perfectly. But….. the smoke was so thick in the distance, we never saw the moon peaking over the distant horizon. Not until it was up at this height did we finally see it.
