Description

An incredible section of the wind river range high route that winds through Big Sandy, Cirque of the Towers, Pyramid Lake, and a desolate Valley. This is a 4 day backpacking trip, and it does not dissapoint! Be prepared for two passes, Jackass and Texas.

Jackass is nothing extreme, whereas Texas Pass gets quite steep and loose.

With the extreme heat we faced, the days seemed long! After Pyramid, we summited and made a high camp on a high outcrop over looking a remote valley.

Recommend! The last day is a flat, easy route back to the Big Sandy Trailhead.

Enjoy!
