Description

After leaving the campground in Thermopolis we drove south through the Wind River Canyon toward Riverton where we took US 26 stopping again in the town of Dubois still hunting for a stream that we could spend a few hours fishing.

We ate lunch in Dubois and met the owner of the Whiskey Creek Saloon. Turns out he is also from Pennsylvania and was willing to let us in on a local fishing gem just 8 miles up the road in Shoshone National Forest. Before we left to give the creek a shot he warned us to keep an eye out for grizzly bears while we were fishing.

Finally we got into some fish and
didn't take our new friends advice lightly after noticing bear tracks along the stream bank. We later learned that during the winter, the largest bighorn sheep herd in the lower 48 states congregate in the region around Dubois, Wyoming.

Fly fishing in Wyoming was exhilarating but short lived…I will be back to fish there again, next time though I will keep a close eye on the snow melt situation before I plan a trip.

The next morning we drove along the Continental Divide (where the waters of the Mississippi, Columbia, and Colorado Rivers are divided) toward the Tetons continuing on US 26 to Jackson where we stopped for lunch.

I took this Gigapan while we stretched our legs at a rest stop along US 26 just inside the National Park. While the camera was snapping pictures I could hear elk bugling in the distance. An older gentleman was also there taking pictures and told us that he had just seen the herd of elk minutes before we got there but that something had spooked them and they ran down into the valley. Just a few miles from where I took this Gigapan we saw a herd of Bison grazing in a meadow near the base of the Tetons.

The road into the Park was filled with mountain peaks and wildlife and if I would have stopped to take pictures of each one of them it would have taken another week to get through the Park.
