Here are a few photos I have taken while doing field research, i.e., backpacking in the Teton and the Washakie Wilderness. Note that these are large files.

It is my view that the Teton and Washakie Wildernesses are the wildest country left in the 48 states. They are contiguous to one another as well as to the roadless SE corner of Yellowstone NP.  They are very important areas for both grizzly bear and wolf recovery.
