Gros Ventre Hiking and Kayaking

On August 2, Jim, Jane, Ally, David, Celeste, John and I took our kayaks out.  Jane and Ally paddled from the dam, but the rest of us put our kayaks in at Oxbow Bend and paddled around there.  We had a great time as you can see from the pictures.

A few days later, Jim, Ally and I hiked around Phelps Lake where the trail climbs to an overlook, then descends to Phelps Lake.  The return involves a steep hike up to an overlook.    It was a little strenuous at 7 1/2 miles.

August 12, Jane, Allison (her daughter) and I hiked Death Canyon.   After finishing this hike I know why it is called Death Canyon.  The trail climbs up and then down to Phelps Lake, followed by a climb into the canyon.  It is a strenuous hike at 7.6 miles and has an elevation gain of 1,061 feet.

I DID IT!!!!!!

On August 17, Jim, Jane, Tony and I took a boat across Jenny Lake and then hiked to Hidden Falls, Inspiration Point and then Cascade Canyon.  Jim and I hiked 8.6 miles round trip, but Jane and Tony went ahead and ended up hiking 16 miles – yuck!!!!
