    The pics on this page are just photos taken from the road cam. Current images are found on the link above… find "Wind River Lake" camera and it should pop up.

    I bicycled that exact route on a coast-to-coast self-contained tour a few years back in the not-winter time. Hwy 26/287 west to the Grand Tetons, then through Jackson WY, (where every dog has a pickup truck and a driver) then the pass through the Tetons, then continued west to the coast of Oregon, then south down the coast to Los Angeles. Excerpt from my journal: "Taking a rest day in Duboise, WY after about three days of debilitating headwinds (It ain't called the Wind River Range for no reason). Tomorrow head out on hwy 287 over another mountain pass to Moran Jct."
