"When you come to a fork in the road, take it..."... Yogi Berra
|Yogi Berra's witty and sage advice led us to discover Green River Lake,|
the headwaters of the 730 mile-long Green River.
Squaretop Mountain, in the center, is one of Wyoming's iconic images.
Road Closed 70 Miles Ahead. Uh oh. Our planned stop for the night, Warren Bridge Campground, is along that stretch of road. I consulted my Wyoming map and camping guides and what do you know? A fork in the road, just before the closure, led to an alternative campground—Whiskey Grove, north of Pinedale along the west side of the Wind River Mountains. I think we'll take that fork.
|Road Closed. A massive forest fire in the Bridger-Teton National Forest|
closed a 50 mile stretch of Highway 191 in Wyoming and generated this
pink smoke cloud visible from 40 miles away.
|Our spacious campsite in Whiskey Grove Campground.|
|Tim and Annie fish the Green River, just down the hill from our campsite.|
|Looks like a wonderful evening around the campfire, doesn't it?|
In reality I was eaten alive by bugs at this very spot.
|In a scene that could be straight from a movie, range-riders trot across the sage-covered hills|
while Tim fishes the meandering Upper Green River.
