Wind River Canyon, WY

On the recommendation of our friend Daphne, we drove through the beautiful Wind River Canyon, on US 20, a designated scenic byway.  On the approach you see a large lake, a reservoir created by the Boysen Dam.  There is a railroad track that runs alongside the Wind River, which was being rebuilt when we drove through.  There are several tunnels for the railroad in the vicinity of the Boysen Power Plant.

Wind River Canyon is the wild west at its best.  Wouldn’t you just love to live in this house (photo below) on the edge of the river, which is just barely visible from the road?   

There are more photos in the album.
