Photo @materas // An 11 mile hike at over 10,000′ in elevation will get you to Island Lake in the Wind River Range, Wyoming. The Winds, as they are known, are a sub-range of the Rocky Mountains. They are less known than their Teton siblings but a bigger range that also contains the highest peak in Wyoming, Gannett Peak at 13,804′. The Winds are also mostly wilderness area with over 150 alpine glaciers and over 1,000 lakes. Follow me @materas for more images like this from the Wyoming and around the world. #windriverrange #wyoming #islandlake
