Backpacking in the Bighorns

My brother Alex and I visited Buffalo, Wyoming this September. After spending a couple days visiting with the grandparents and other relatives we set off for a few days in the Bighorn Mountains. Sadly, the weather didn’t exactly cooperate with us this. Being the first week of September it should have been beautiful. Instead we got snow on the ground before we left. We decided to risk it and had a few nice days in the Lake Helen & Mistymoon Lake area, but eventually Mother Nature caught up to use and we got 6″ of snow on the 3rd nigtht. At that point we decided to call it a trip and head back down.
On the upside we got in a nice day trip to Lake Solitude, and did a bit of fishing as well.
