Sunrise in the Upper Green
I wanted to catch the early morning light in the Upper Green River region of western Wyoming, north of Pinedale this weekend. I was lucky enough to recruit my son Cass and our neighbor and friend Haley for the adventure. The mountain on the right in the photo above is Square Top (about 11,600 feet), and on the left is Osborn Mountain (about 11,800 feet), in the Wind River range.
It was 25 degrees with a thick frost - conditions were beautiful. Cass couldn't resist taking a dip with the fly rod.
Cass had to share the water with the residents of the neighborhood.
The sun came up over the top of the mountains and burned the frost and mist off quickly, giving rise to another beautiful fall day in Wyoming.
A sleepy but happy Cass.
