Wyoming Wonder

I found the Holy Grail!  After several failed attempts in 2002, and 2010 on the 40+ mile road into the Bridger National Forest above Pinedale, I successfully reached this vista of Square Top Mountain.  From Cora:  highway 352 ends at the torturous rocky washboard, dusty gravel, muddy, or snowdrift-blocked forest access road along the upper Green River, leading to the headwaters of the river-and this spectacular Wyoming backcountry! On May 17, 2013 I saw herds of elk, pronghorn antelope, and waterfowl including three sandhill cranes. This giant tabernacle suddenly revealed itself within the morning mist!
