Bob and Sharon sporting bug nets at the trailhead. We all tried to eat, drink, or spit through these at some point over the weekend.
Heading up the Pole Creek Trail
View from Photographers Point
The further we got the better the views
One of many stream crossings
Another glass-lake reflection
The trail pops up onto a great lookout above Senecca Lake
The views keep getting better the deeper we got into the Winds
Mosquito bite prevention
Beach party at Island Lake
Brokeback Mountain jokes almost got us killed

Drainage of Titcomb Basin
Near our camp, terrible views!

Chilling out in the kitchen
Bonney Pass is over Keith's left shoulder. We did not find the path of least resistance on the way up, in the dark
Dinwoody Glacier right before we got rained on. We roped right after stepping on the glacier, good thing because moments later Bob dropped into a crevasse up to his knees.
Over a rock rib to the Gooseneck Glacier
Once the skies cleared the views were spectacular.
The wide saddle in the middle is Bonney Pass, where we came from and where we'll have to go back up and over.
A loo with a view.
About to get on the Gooseneck Glacier.
The theme of the day was rock, snow, rock, snow, rock snow, repeat.
Summit in top right of photo.
Heading towards the snow bridge thinking light-thoughts.
Its holdin' for Bob!
Its holdin' for Sharon! Kevin and I tip-toed over it next.
Steep snow after the berschund then more rock.
Last bit of rock before the snowy summit ridge.
Kevin on the summit ridge, 10 minutes of sleep catching up with him.
More terrible views.
Got the top in sight!
WooHoo! Top 'O Wyoming after 6hrs 20mins.
We didn't stay up top for long since the snow was getting really soft.
Roping back up next to Gooseneck Pinnacle.
Berschund and snow bridge just below Bob, our last major obstacle.
Whew, it held.
Heading down for rock, snow, rock, snow, rock, snow.
Just 1200' more gain to go.
Getting back up Bonney Pass was almost too easy, we're all smiles. Summit in the back.
The newlyweds, still smiling after nearly 12hrs on the go.
Titcomb Basin back in sight, our tents was wayyyyyy down there.
Titcomb Basin and surrounding peaks.
