Hiking Blue Miner Lake to Sleeping Indian Jackson Hole

I take you on a full two-day hike into the wilderness hiking to Blue Miner Lake to Sleeping Indian in Jackson Hole in this video. This overnight trip is best done as a shuttle hike with a friend, that way you don’t have to backtrack. Instead, just enjoy the summit of Sleeping Indian (Sheep Mountain) after spending the night at Blue Miner Lake.
I also try a little fly fishing at Blue Miner Lake. It is a great secluded lake with some potential. I could see fish striking at insects so I had a chance, though the wind didn’t help my efforts.
I had a small disaster – I popped my air mat at night during the lightning storm. It made for an interesting evening of sleeping. I tell you how I dealt with that issue and how to avoid making my mistake.

During my stay in Jackson Hole in the summer of 2012 for my Antarctica training, there was very little rain. Being from southern California, I didn’t mind it too much.
