2016 Dingo Vacation to the Bighorn Mountains, Wyoming Adventure Index

When SPHP was planning Lupe’s big Summer of 2016 Dingo Vacation to the Canadian Rockies, Yukon & Alaska, there was one peak SPHP wanted Lupe to get a chance to climb this summer that didn’t really fit in – Cloud Peak (13,167 ft.), the highest mountain in the Bighorn Range of north central Wyoming.

Fortunately, the Bighorns aren’t that far away from Lupe’s home in the Black Hills of South Dakota!  From July 18th thru July 21st, Lupe wound up taking a preliminary 4 day mini-Dingo Vacation to the Bighorns, just so she could get her ascent of Cloud Peak done before leaving on her big Summer of 2016 Dingo Vacation on July 30th.

Lupe not only succeeded in reaching the top of Cloud Peak, by far the highest mountain she climbed in 2016, but she also had time on her first day in the Bighorns to visit the 3 possible Washakie County High Points and Hazelton Pyramid, too!
