"L" is lumberjacks

After a few weeks of eating beans up on Brokeback, Jack's complaints convinced Ennis to shoot an elk, and soon the boys were downing the fresh steaks like a couple of lumberjacks.

Story Jack and Ennis visited many of the mountains in Wyoming, including the Sierra Madre Range, though they never returned to Brokeback.

"N" is noteworthily

Ennis's warm welcome of Jack when he arrived in Riverton after four fucking years, was noteworthily unusual, seeing as how afraid he was of anybody finding out about them.

"O" is outbreak

Ennis attributed the sudden onset of stomach cramps after he and Jack went their separate ways to something he ate at a greasy spoon up in Dubois, but only later realized the outbreak was because he shouldn'ta let Jack outta his sights.

"P" is pollened

From the story:

In May of 1983 they spent a few cold days at a series of little icebound, no-name high lakes, then worked across into the Hail Strew River drainage...
The tea-colored river ran fast with snowmelt, a scarf of bubbles at every high rock, pools and setbacks streaming. The ochre-branched willows swayed stiffly, pollened catkins like yellow thumbprints.

Despite being filmed in Alberta, it is the Tetons' image we see in the poster.

During her one and only conversation with Ennis, Lureen at last found out how her husband's unexplained fondness for Brokeback Mountain had come to pass.

"W" is wrongdoing

Joe Aguirre told Jack to roll up the pup tent every morning so the Forest Service wouldn't detect any wrongdoing when they came snooping around Brokeback Mountain.
