Our 2005 backpack trip spent 2 nights along Frontier Creek. In a camp at the edge of a meadow, we hung our food and gear and fished for wild cutthroat trout. We hiked a day trip to Cougar Pass and overlooked the Thoroughfare and South Fork of Shoshone river. Elk, bighorn sheep in the highest country, and juncos nesting near camp. Other hikers passed by - a through hiker from Brooks Lake and a couple in their 70's with llamas who wore bear bells. This area has burned since we hiked it and may have changed.
