AUGUST 9: Sunset Hike to Sacred Rim, 4 pm – 9 pm
Rising abruptly from the Green River Valley and the sagebrush-clad hills, the Wind River Range pierces the sky with 12,000 and 13,000-foot summits that span 110 miles from Pass. The Wind Rivers form a triple divide – providing water to three major western rivers: the Gros Ventre, the Green, and the Wind. From the Sacred Rim overlook the views are stunning; in fact, they are described as the best views anywhere of the Wind River skyline. Enjoy a beautiful summer sunset with a Pass.
