Really out there

In 2003, Deanne and I led our Venturers backpacking in Yellowstone NP. It was Deanne's first big trip since getting a new artificial hip. In addition to our days in the backcountry, we had quite a road trip out and back, seeing all the cool things. On our way back, we camped in Wind River Canyon SP. The Moon was enormous as it rose over the barren rim of the canyon.
