. Picture by: @roundtheworldgirl . Two weeks, 144 miles, 126,000ft of vert gain/loss, and 50 peaks later... We’ve successfully traversed the Wind River Range from north to south, folks! I may have looked like pic #1 most often, but I felt much more like pic #2 the majority of the time… ——————————————————— Here’s what I learned: 1.) Going up and down 50 peaks is an effective way to lose 6lbs in two weeks (Don’t worry, I haven’t eaten a single vegetable since I got out of the mountains so I’m sure I’ve already gained it back). 2.) My body can hold up pretty well for exactly 9 days of peak bagging from sun up to sun down. Day 10 on is torture. 3.) If you’re bored enough, you may able to recount nearly every single scene from the Lord of the Rings trilogy despite having not seen the films in years. Try it next time you’re out in the mountains hopping around on rocks and getting blasted by hurricane force winds for two weeks! ——————————————————— More pics to come! #windwalkertraverse PC: @ryan_burke11 .

We did it!! And now we’re gonna eat a lot of ice cream!  A new 50 summit traverse of the Wind River Range from North to South along the continental divide. 15 days, 144 miles, 126k of vert gain/loss, 1 grizzly encounter, 11 inches of August snow, 1 sleepless night, 5 death scree gullies, and so many smiles.  Couldn’t ask for a better adventure partner then @roundtheworldgirl to keep the mission alive!  Thanks to @arcteryx for providing the best gear there is and @mountain_tactical for training my knees to withstand some punishment. Also big props to @davide_anderson and @szuting928 for inspiring and encouraging Winds summit marathon-ing adventures! 📸@roundtheworldgirl.  #windwalkertraverse
