"Little Medicine Tower"
I headed to the desert of Wyoming to try and climb some towers located on in the Bighorn Mountains (the highway 14 towers). I started up the steep switchbacks just out of the the town of Lovell in the 100 degree temps. This is where the trip took an unexpected turn. My truck (Truck Norris) overheated, then started sputtering and stalling. I somehow made it to the top of the pass, but I didn't want to press further into the mountains with a broken truck. I let it cool down for a long time then got it back down to the valley floor without it dieing (when my truck dies I loose my power steering and my brakes). I decided to stick around a little closer to the town of Lovell.
Since I was planning on aid soloing the highway 14 towers I was well equiped to climb this thing. I packed my bag and set off through the thick juniper trees to the base of the tower.
