Brooks Lake, Wyoming

High (9100' elevation) in the Shoshone National Forest I discovered this little gem of a place to stay.
It is to be able to call a place like this home for a few days
is why I do what I do - live on the road.

Looking the opposite direction from our home-site are these majestic cliffs.

Nearby Brooks Creek that empties into the lake. 
This bear country and no tent camping allowed.  You must be in a hard-sided abode.

Less than a mile down the road was a trail head to view some falls.
I just had to go see. 

 What is it about waterfalls and cascades that so captivates us?

Dropping down 2300' in elevation to the west I was finally able to get a good cell signal and make up this post.  Off in the not-too-far distance the Grand Teton mountains rise skyward but I am barely able to see them for all the smoke coming down from those wildfires in Canada.
Or maybe there is a fire close by I do not know about.

Whoever named the state of Wyoming must have had a good deal of poetry in their soul.

Gorgeous location. Those rocky mountain peaks look like a painted theatre backdrop, hard to believe they are real.

Definitely a gorgeous spot. I wonder about all the dead trees though.
