Wyoming and Wind River Ranges

On Monday, July 12th, after the Green River Rendezvous was over we moved the RV to the Yellowstone Trail RV Park in Pinedale, WY, a brand new park. We stayed until Saturday for 5 nights enjoying Pinedale and the scenic Wyoming area. We hiked the Sacred Rim Trail, a 4 mile out-and-back trail on the edges of the Bridger Wilderness near Pinedale. We drove the Skyline Scenic Drive with breathtaking views of the Wind River Range at 9,000 feet, to Ekhart Park. We started on the Pole Creek Trail for a few 100 yards until we found the cairn where the trail branched off to the Sacred Rim Trail to the left. At the end of the trail we were rewarded with absolutely incredible views, and you feel like you’re on top of the world. We looked down at Long Lake and looked out across the Wind River Range in the Bridger Wilderness… such a large space untouched by humanity. Sacred Rim is an appropriate name for this short, quiet trail as it is a part of heaven on Earth. Click on thumbnail to view images Continue reading
