Wyoming’s Wind River Country
(Lander, Wyo.) – There are several things that can impact tourism travel, and road construction and wildfires are two of the biggies. Fortunately, there is no road construction in the area and, while the Fairfield Fire burning near Lander is an active wildfire, it is not impacting travel as it is off of the main travel routes.
wrvc125The Wind River Visitors Council Tuesday said the only visitors to be affected are those who were planning on camping in or visiting the Sinks Canyon State Park area 6 miles south of Lander or accessing the Middle Fork Trail at Bruce’s Bridge. The main highways, US 26, US 287, Wyoming 789 and Wyoming 28 are all open without restrictions and all local events are being held as planned.
Activities such as horseback trail riding in the Dubois area are readily available. (Wyoming's Wind River Country)
