360° VR Panoramas of Yellowstone and Northern Wyoming
Pinedale and Vicinity
At the south base of the Wind River Range, Wyoming

Pinedale is sited where the dry terrace at the foot of the Wind River Range meets the wet meadows along the Green River, a natural gateway to the resources of the mountains and lakes. It was a favored encampment for Native Americans and for several of the yearly rendezvous of the fur trappers.

Father Pierre-Jean de Smet, a Jesuit missionary to the indigenous peoples of the American west, is commemorated with a tomb-like monument on a bluff above the bends of the river.
