Climbing Table Mountain, Wyoming

On January 17th James Helfrich, James Allen, Todd Moseley, and myself snowshoed up Table Mountain. Table mountain is a popular summer hike for families living on this side of the Tetons. I had never been in my 19 years living in Rexburg. This winter the opportunity arose when Todd volunteered his snow machines to take us the 6 miles to the mountain and back out at the end. That meant we could have a leisurely hike up the mountain and still catch dinner in Driggs. The fact that this hike would be in 5 feet of snow made it even more appealing. Not many people want to undertake the hike up the face of Table Mountain in the winter. The following is a sampling of photos taken during the day.
