6-10-12, Snake River, WY - After a lazy, Sunday morning departure from our camp on the Hoback, the lads and I started down canyon to the town of Hoback Junction. After buying some groceries and having lunch in Hoback, I started down the Snake River Canyon towards the Idaho State Line.
It was a cold blustery morning. On the surrounding mountainsides, I could see that during the night, snow had stuck on the ground only a few hundred feet higher than the altitude of the camp. For the first couple of hours, I kept the front cabin of the wagon buttoned up and a blanket on my lap. Then, as it continued to stay cold, I became a real wimp and turned on the propane heater.
