Photo Gallery: The Wind River Canyon Mud and Rockslides as seen from above

(Shoshoni, Wyo.) – Photos of the mud and rockslide areas inside the Wind River Canyon were taken from an aircraft Tuesday morning by Dustin Taylor, a passenger in a plane piloted by Darren Bailey. The photos show the scope of the rockslides, especially their impact on the Burlington Northern Sante Fe railroad that runs through the west side of the canyon. Highway 20/789 is shown as WYDOT crews cleaned the debris from the roadway.

Dubois Association for Recreation and Trails debuts its first completed Mountain Bike Trail tomorrow

Dubois, WY – On the edge of the Shoshone National Forest, nestled between the Wind River Range and rugged Absaroka Mountains, sits the rustic and tiny rustic Town of Dubois. At the crossroads of the Continental Divide Hiking Trail and the Transamerica Bike Trail, Dubois is a pristine setting for backcountry skiing, picturesque hiking, remote climbing, and now, mountain biking. The landscape surrounding Dubois – the multi-hued crimson layers of badlands, forested peaks, tranquil lakes, and the meandering Wind River – inspired a handful of outdoor recreation enthusiasts to conceive Dubois Association for Recreation and Trails (D.A.R.T.), a non-profit dedicated to maintaining and improving access to local outdoor recreation opportunities. Membership includes those with interests of mountain bikers, hikers, skiers, climbers and trail runners.
