Have you thought about over weighting your four weight for more distance and high wind conditions. There are many artcles on line that discuss this technique. I no longer packpack (hip replacment) but when I fish the Upper Owens River I will over weight my 3wt with my 4wt line and it works for me.

Waterborne, those pics are stellar! They definitely got me fired up for the trip! I'm planning on taking my DSLR, and your suggestion to whip out the camera when the wind gets in the way of fishing is brilliant.
