We stumbled onto a pipeline heading toward Lander. Two track super highway.


All of a sudden, the vast plains we had been riding through abruptly stopped at about a 1000 foot relief.


We found a route switch backing down.


This is what it’s all about out here.


The two tracks criss cross in a crazy pattern out here. Finally, after working through the maze we were on the last stretch into Lander.


A quick stop for food, gas and beer.


We climbed into the Wind River Range looking for a campsite for the night.


Of course we’d have to descend a really rocky trail that dead ended, only to climb back up it.


We found another route that was more well traveled and started down it.


We hit the bottom and find a perfect campsite right on the creek.


As I stated earlier, stoves are frowned upon by minimalists. A metal cup and what we refer to as the ‘adjust-a-fork’ are all that is needed.

I somehow didn’t have an adjust-a-fork along with me in Michigan so I quickly came up with something else that I deemed the ‘meat rod’. A single metal rod for cooking meat. More minimal than a fork!! I thought it was brilliant. Turns out, the adjust-a-fork is superior. meat just spins on the single rod making it impossible to turn over. Oh well.
