It’s more than 3,000 miles long, and only a handful of people hike the whole thing in a single year. Marc Koeplin of Cheyenne is one of them.</p><p>He and his hiking partner finished the trail a few weeks ago, and joined Wyoming Public Radio’s Willow Belden to talk about the trip. He says his first long-distance hike was the Appelachian Trail, which he did 12 years ago.</p> Fri, 25 Oct 2013 21:55:04 +0000 Willow Belden 48948 at http://wyomingpublicmedia.org Thru hiking the Continental Divide Trail Missing hiker's body found in Wind River Range http://wyomingpublicmedia.org/post/missing-hikers-body-found-wind-river-range <p>The body of the hiker who has been missing in the Wind River Range has been found. James 'Randy' Udall did not return from a hiking trip to the Wind River Range and search and rescue crews worked for days before locating him in a remote area of the Range. It appears he died of natural causes, though an autopsy is forthcoming. In a statement, his family said Udall “left this earth doing what he loved most, hiking in his most favorite mountain range in the world.”</p> Thu, 04 Jul 2013 14:25:20 +0000 Irina Zhorov 43193 at http://wyomingpublicmedia.org Missing hiker's body found in Wind River Range Wyoming Wilderness Association – Sheridan http://wyomingpublicmedia.org/post/wyoming-wilderness-association-sheridan <p>The Wyoming Wilderness Association (WWA) is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization first created in 1979 by a group of wilderness advocates and outdoors people who envisioned the Wyoming Wilderness Act.&nbsp; Headquartered in Sheridan, WWA has offices in Jackson, Dubois and Lander as well.<br /><br /> In 1984, the passage of the Wyoming Wilderness Act brought to all Americans the permanent protection of an additional 1.1 million acres of ecologically diverse, wild country.<br /> Thu, 31 May 2012 15:52:58 +0000 Carolyn Schroth 24841 at http://wyomingpublicmedia.org Wyoming Wilderness Association – Sheridan
