Wind River Range, Wyoming

June 20, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

The Wind River Range is a sub-range of the Rocky Mountains, running almost 100 miles southeast from the Tetons.  The majority of the range is within the Bridger Wilderness and the Wind River Indian Reservation.  Most of the range is accessible only on foot or horseback, and there are very few roads that allow a close approach to the mountains.

Our base of operations was the town of Pinedale, Wyoming, which bills itself as the gateway to the “Winds”.  It is the only town of any size on the western slope of the Winds between Jackson and Rock Springs.

The objective of our trip was to photograph the spring wildflowers, and we were able to find several good examples.
