Ige, Mike, John, and I spent a few days exploring the Great Divide Basin in Wyoming this year. John and I were there in 2010 and couldn't get enough. Here are a few pics to enjoy.

We decided to change it up a bit this year. We followed a route across the northern portion of the basin. After we crossed the basin we then followed the Oregon/Mormon/ California trails thru South Pass.
It was an awesome experience to follow the paths of the pioneers and see the petroglyphs left behind by Native Americans that once occupied the area.
After facing several powerful storms on the prairie/desert I have a great respect for the hardships they endured. We also found a few tepee circles like the one in the photo below.
Below are a few HD videos of a fun water crossing (now my truck is throwing a CEL code 26)and getting stuck in quick sand (I thought that stuff only existed in old westerns).
