Back Soon!

Middle Teton Peak marker, I think it says, it's a bit hard to read, 12,804 feet above sea level. I've lived at sea level all my life and I've never been past 9500 ft. Cool huh?

Chilin' at the top of the Middle Teton Peak checking out the much higher neighboring Grand Teton Peak with Meghan.

Admiring the Grand Teton and the Middle Teton Peaks from the top of the South Teton Peak. That's actually two mountains in front of me. The Grand Teton is the highest one with the snow running down on one side. The Middle Peak is to the right and it looks like it's been cleaved into two at the top.

Meghan on the Bridger Mountain Range. Beautiful and rugged. Between Wyoming and Montana there are many mountains to hike, run and scramble. It's a mountain runner's paradise. Caffeine, Ibuprofen, a good endurance base and a slower easier pace has allowed me to cope just fine with the altitude.
