I just returned from backpacking in the Tetons. Again. The first weekend (the 28th through the 1st) we backpacked up paintbrush canyon, camped above Holly Lake, and relished in the beauty of Autumn alpine glow.
We made our next try in the morning. It was cold, very very cold. Dark clouds were threatening us so we hurried across the flats, arriving at the shores of the Snake. We made 3 attempts before finding an acceptable crossing (not too deep that it would soak our packs, and current slow enough we could keep our balance).
Anyhow, a mile or so later we arrived at a warm cabin and made the decision to put off our 10 mile hike for a day in an attempt to get semi-dry gear to use. I slept most of that day away.
