Wyoming's Wind River Range: From the SW, S, NW, and SE -- Slide-Show by Rod McCalley


05/08/2012 7:30 pm


This show will cover several regions of the Wind River Range. I've always liked this range of the Rockies for great combination of backpacking & peak-climbing (lots of nice lakes near the peaks!). The four trips in my show go from 1974 to 2005, from the far south to far north, with entrances from Big Sandy Opening, Little Sandy & Sweetwater Gap, Green River Lakes, and the Middle Fork of the Popo Agie River. Included are climbs of Squaretop, Gannett, Bonneville, Shark's Nose, Wind River Peak, and others. There have been a number of coincidences on these trips, including two encounters with climbers I had known back in Massachusetts in the '60's! Also, in the summit register of Temple Peak in 1975, we found the signature of Wind River climbing pioneer Finis Mitchell, from only 5 years earlier (he was then in his 70's!).
