The Jim Bridger Wilderness is located along the Continental Divide on the west slope of the Wind River Range in Wyoming. Over 600 miles of trails meander through this pristine wilderness, which contains a rich diversity of wildlife. Moose, elk, bighorn sheep, mule deer, and bears are common. Several years ago, I hiked with the group shown into a scenic wonderland that, in spots, reminded me of Yosemite.
The background image wrapping this blog site was also taken in the Jim Bridger Wilderness. The term “wilderness” is appropriate; motorized vehicles and mechanized equipment, such as a chainsaw, are not allowed here. Peace and quiet prevail. If you truly want to disappear and chill out, this would be a good place to take a long hike.
