|Sunset over the Wind River Mountain Range|
Looking a bit more to the south, I caught this picture (below). See that knife-edged peak (just left of center)? The Cirque of the Towers is just to the right of it. It's one of my favorite hikes (but a good 12 miles of hiking to get there!) in the Wind River Range. Many "foreigners" like to make a trek into the Cirque, which includes Lonesome Lake at the base of Pingora Peak. It is a beautiful spot.
Looking even further to the southeast, Wind River Peak was beautifully silhouetted. My dad always referred to it as the Old Man of the Mountain. The large sloping peak (Wind River Peak) is the old man's beard. The old man is lying down, looking up at the sky. So to the right of the beard, you see the outline of his nose and then his forehead.

I really enjoyed this spectacular sunset!
