WIND RIVER TRAVERSE   Wind River Mountains, Wyoming

This was a 18 day ski traverse of the Continental Divide as it wanders through the northern Wind River Mountains. We skied to the Continental Glacier to meet with the Divide.The turned South, did a winter ascent of Gannett Peak. Up and over Dinwoody Pass into the Titcomb Basin then exited by Elkhart Park. Did this with my two friends Bob Monet of Boulder and Mark DeVries of  Lead, South Dakota, Cody, Wyoming or could it be Alaska ( who knows where he is from).
