Climbing the Grand Teton. Again. Part 2.

Check out part 1

After the Marscot incident, which lasted for at least an hour of the approach, the hike continued…on and on and on.

Across the valley, to the east, it was hard to miss the forest fire that was front-page material throughout Wyoming (that’s right–Wyoming has newspapers.  Next up for the cowboy state: electricity!).

The hike was difficult because we carried gear for 3 days on the mountain.  Twice we were stopped by Park Rangers asking for our camping permit.  Although I didn’t bring it (and was never provided the necessary tent-tag), I did take a photo of the permit just in case we were stopped.  This got us out of a lot of trouble:

We decided against ascending the fixed lines with such heavy backpacks.  Instead, we camped where I’ve camped before, at the Moraine, nearly 7 hours after leaving the trailhead.
