BACKPACKER: Live From The Tetons

Photographic evidence of our intrepid blogger getting out from under his desk to hike, bike, and flyfish in Grand Targhee on the west side of the Tetons.
  • Tackling 'Sidewinder,' one of Grand Targhee's famous downhill biking trails.
  • Guide Jeff Jung leads the hike into the Jedediah Smith Wilderness. The Cathedral section of the Tetons lies beyond.
  • South Leigh Lakes, in the Jedediah Smith Wilderness.
  •  A spectacular reverse view of the Tetons' Cathedal group.
  • The author and Chicago Sun-Times crime reporter Frank Main show off their downhill biking wounds.
  • BACKPACKER's Ted Alvarez prepares to fish (or be fished).
  • Idling down the trout-filled Teton River.
  • Wyoming's Wind River Range from the air.
  • "Welcome to Jackson International...please do not take scenic photos while crossing the tarmac."
