[5]June 9, 2009
We finally access the top but not befor noticing a grizzly track on the game trail we are following over the pass. It is pretty fresh so we are definitely keeping our eyes open. We break out of the timber and onto this bare grass covered slope and gaze south towards Windy Gap with Wiggins Fork in the next canyon beyond we check out the line of rock seen in this photo. There is still some log remnants visible. Some hundreds of years ago the Sheepeater Indians piled rock and logs into fence lines through which they then chased Buffalo into and over the cliff face that is at the edge of the grassy slope. Their idea of a trip to the grocery store.
