Wind River Wilderness - Prime

For 14 days, you'll explore Wyoming's Wind River Mountains, a wilderness range renowned for its pristine lakes and rugged mountain beauty. After carrying a pack efficiently loaded with everything you need to the top of your first high mountain pass, you'll descend into a glacial valley and help lead your hiking group to camp. You and your peers will take turns baking pizzas over a camp stove and catching cutthroat trout for dinner. At night, a star-filled sky will shroud your tent as you rest for the next stimulating day of exploration and learning. In addition to hiking as many as 40 miles on and off trail, you'll fly-fish, learn how to use a GPS, summit towering granite mountains, and may have an opportunity to rock climb. You'll master the skills to be able to take your friends and family on outdoor expeditions long after you return from Wyoming.
