    I camped there (Medicine Bow Nat Forest) many, many, many moons ago. So long in fact that the only things I can remember are:

    1. The chipmunks had no fear and seemed to enjoy unpacking my food/cooking boxes
    2. The area was beautiful
    3. Camp fees were on the honor system
    4. In July, any low lying, moist areas are breeding grounds for swarms of mosquitoes - and I do mean SWARMS

    All of my WY hanging trips - and most od any kind of WY trips but not all - have been in the Wind River Mountains a bit north west of MBNF. But my first ever trip to WY was way years ago when I lived in CO. I think we couldn't get a camp site in RMNP maybe on July 4th weekend so we just kept driving. Saw an interesting green spot on the map and headed for it and camped. I remember beautiful rugged peaks. I just remember thinking it was real beautiful, but the fine details of memory are fairly dim.

    Now if you want details on the Winds, that I can do!
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    I'll probably take you up on that in a couple of months. I figure I'll be heading out there with some regularity

I'm going in mostly blind as I have never been.. I will learn as much as I can in a short period of time. Hopefully I will be able to post some photos next week..
