Hiking in Medicine Bow Nat'l Forest Wyoming

Here are some photos from our Hike in Medicine Bow National Forest just outside of Laramie, WY. It had snowed two days before, and considering we were at 8800 feet above sea level, there was surprisingly little snow on the ground. Here is one of my buddy (Best Man from my wedding) Todd and his 3 year old pup Ulysses. Todd is a back-country ranger in Grand Tetons National Park in Northwest WY and drove down to hang out.

The rock formations were phenomenal, everything appeared to be a number of smaller boulders held together by friction and gravity making up such a huge rock formation. This one we all felt looked like an old man. A replacement for the Man in the Mountain from Vermont? To the right is a photo of a beaver dam (there were tons) that we saw during the hike. The scenery was fantastic.

2010 Efforts!

This year, like last year, I will be riding for Mary Payton's Miracle - My friend Steve Kogos from Trigators informed me that his friend Joe's daughter, Mary Payton, was diagnosed a number of years back with Late Infantile Batten Disease. This is a disease with no cure, however, there are special experimental (and extremely expensive) treatments which have shown some significant signs of success! In order to assist with the costly treatments and research, Mary Payton's Miracle was created to raise money to find a cure, hopefully in time to save little Mary Payton as well as the many others affected by this terrible disease!
