Into the Popo Agie

By August 9, 2019 August 31st, 2019 Excursions

Meaning “Gurgling River” in Crow, we followed the trail right from our campsite on Fiddler’s Lake to the sub-alpine Upper Silas Lake, for a 10.5 mile day hike .

A few miles into the South Shoshone we reached the gateway to The Wilderness.

When we sat down for a break, I definitely heard a gurgle.

At 10,400′, the waters of Upper Silas Lake were brilliantly cold from ice melt.

Our turn-around point was when a cow moose, grazing at the far end of a hyperion meadow, started at our stage whispers, looked up and said, “Please!”

Happy at altitude.
