Jackson Hole and Northwest Wyoming Feature
The Allures of the Wind River Range
History: From ancient Native American settlements to early pioneer trails, towns, and red rock canyons and mountains … nearly anywhere you look out here, man and nature have left their indelible marks.
Space: The drive westward and from the southeast never fails to enchant newcomers with one of America’s least-populated frontiers.
Sights: As you approach Dubois from the flatlands of Riverton and enter the ascending Wind River Range, keep an eye peeled for mule deer and robust wildlife.
Sounds: Park the car at any scenic overlook, or camp out at the right time of year, and you’ll understand why "The Wind River" area resounds with timeless music.
Colors: Yellowed, tawny prairies in late summer and early fall; ochre-stained geology around Dubois; and lazy sunsets that paint the skies indigo and red cast a spell on unhurried visitors.
