That is Bow Mountain viewed from Elbow Lake in the Wind River Range.

 

 

Yes! What I recognized was Stroud Peak - the pyramid on the left. We love that part of the Winds.

On time we were backpacking in the Winds and experienced what was cool.  My gal was waken by flashing lights and when she woke up enough she noticed it was lighting off in the distance.

 

As the storm approached closer the thunder would rumble in the Winds for 30 to 45 seconds.  It was quite a show to the eyes and the ears!!

 

Then the heavens opened and was pretty windy pushing down hard on the tent.  Of course you set the tent on a nice shelf, and yes wind would effect it. Duh!

 

Many times backpacked in the Wind Rivers and those memories are the best and we still talk about it with a smile.....
