Near Crowheart in Fremont County, Wyoming — The American West (Mountains)
The winds constantly blow and keep the foothill vegetation exposed for wintering wildlife. In the rainshadow of the Wind River Mountains the basin does not generally retain deep snow cover. As a result, the shrubs and grasses in this area provide an available winter food source to wildlife. The winds play on the landscape to help make “Wyoming’s Wildlife- Worth the Watching.”
