[cdt-l] 3 weeks


You can loop through the Cirque of the Towers from Big Sandy Lake after
crossing Temple Pass.  The cirque is certainaly worth seeing.  You can also
continue N from the Cirque along the E side of the Divide and cross back
over to the W at either Wasushakie passe or the one N of there above Grave
Lake, if my memory is correct, at the Reservation Boundry.  This whole
section along the E side of the Divide is nice.

Temple Pass is on the W side of the Divide.  The walk from the Sweetwater
Guard Station over Sweetwater Gap to the Cirque of the Towers is also very
nice and passes numerous lakes.  This is on the E side of the Divide.

>From the Sweetwater Guard Station to the Green River Lakes and return is
also possible without excessive retracing of steps.

A number of years ago, there was a shuttle service operating in Pinedale.
Check with the wilderness outfitter in Pinedale.
