Titcomb Basin is situated in the heart of the Wind River Mountains and is a fishing destination for many. Yes, there are trout in these streams! The high altitude and rugged nature of the region make for an austere and amazingly beautiful landscape. We wound up staying here for an extra day because there was so much to see!

I tried this shot at a couple of different times but unfortunately due to the way the basin is situated, the golden hours didn't illuminate the stream. In order to get a well exposed shot I had to capture the image when the sun was high. I was thankful for a few puffy clouds to help this one along.
