    Hi guys. I switched from LR to Capture One recently and thought I would revisit memorable trips from the past. I remembered a long but enjoyable day hike in the Medicine Bow Mountains of southern Wyoming back in summer 2014 so I dug up the photos. I thought some might enjoy seeing the place. The rugged but accessible range is characterized by numerous lakes.

    All pics are from an EM1 and 12-40 f2.8. We visited when smoke and haze from distant wildfires was pretty bad.

    We start our day at the Lewis Lake trail head off Hwy 130. I set up the tripod next to Lewis Lake and relax, everything still. Blue hour is the best.

    I put the tripod away and shoulder my day pack. We are hiking many miles today starting with the summit of Medicine Bow Peak, elevation 12,014 ft. Time to hit the trail.

    After an hour or two of hiking above treeline, we descend into the trees and enter a beautiful garden of wildflowers.
