Just finished the entire set of trip reports and it was amazing. Thanks for taking the time to document and upload pictures!!

The Winds have been tempting me for some time... it may be time to get serious about planning a trip. I may send you a message with some general questions about what area to begin planning a trip around.

Ditto.

Thanks for taking the time to put these together; as above its strongly increased my desire to return to the Winds - maybe in a couple of years.

I've followed and plotted(ish) these routes on CalTopo.

Hi WD, this is super belated but I don't come to the Beyond the Sierra section often (ironically). Just wanted to say thanks for putting in the effort to post these reports! I haven't been to the Winds yet, but like Risetoadry I hope to some day (and probably for the same reasons).

WOW WD! I wish I had enough time to see these places! I still need to see the Green River Lakes at a minimum! My focus has been "Flying Monkey Lake" the past two years. I got skunked both times. I may or may not have one more shot at it, but I realize I am missing so much when I see your photos! Thank you so much for sharing!!!!

This is perfect timing WD, Lizzie and I are just contemplating another trip to the Tetons and Winds. Your brilliant guide book is in the mail soon I hope. Cheers, Ian.

I hope your guide book tells us how to catch fish; we had poor luck.
