The weekend of 20 Jul 12, Tracy and I headed up to Tosi Creek (Google Map) in the Gros

Ventre Wilderness of Wyoming.  We had checked out this trailhead a few weeks earlier, and I

wanted to see if we could make it up to Tosi Basin.  There isn't an official trail going to the

Basin, so I wasn't sure what to expect.  The trail starts out by crossing Tosi Creek, and then

continues along the creek for several miles.  This part of the Gros Ventre area is fairly low in

elevation, so it was pretty hot.  Also, there was almost no tree cover, which made it that much

hotter.  About 7 miles in, when we were supposed to turn away from the creek to head up to

Tosi Basin, I just hit a wall and got really weak.  I think the heat and sun just zapped me, and I

crashed out.  So we looked for a campsite for 45 minutes, and finally settled on a spot that

worked.  I've had the hardest time finding campsites this summer...I don't know what the

problem is, but I've been unable to find an existing site on four different trips...it's been weird.

Anyway, we eventually pitched camp and just enjoyed the area.  The area was really pretty,

and we didn't see a single person the whole weekend.  We hiked a little above camp to try to

get a look into Tosi Basin.  We also saw some elk, including one that didn't seem to see us as it

got within a few feet of us before I let it know we were there.  This was a really nice trail, but I

think it would be better earlier or later in the season, just because of its elevation and its sun

exposure.
