John, Jeff, and I scheduled a trip to check out the Cirque of the Towers in the Wind River Range of Wyoming.  We drove to the Big Sandy Trailhead on Thursday evening and car camped for the night.  Friday we hiked into the cirque and found a base camp that would serve us for the next couple of days.
