“Shhh” – Sleeping Indian

“Shhh” – Sleeping Indian

There is a Sleeping Indian above the tree line at the southern end of the 5 mile Sheep Mountain section which is part of the Gros Ventre Range. Gros Ventre is pronounced “Grow Vaunt”. This mountain range was named after the nomadic tribe of Gros Ventre Indians who traveled through the area on a regular basis.

In modern day, Sheep Mountain is referred to as Sleeping Indian. I think you will see why as you look at the photographs. These photographs were taken looking eastward across the National Elk Refuge outside Jackson, Wyoming.

  1. Thanks Mike, we’ll be looking for this one as we trek North this summer. Jackson Hole is on our way to Moran, WY, where we’ll stay to enjoy the Grand Tetons…

  2. Michael, I am just getting this! Life in Maine is BUSY. Leon had to point out that Sleeping Indian as I was studying the photo!! Great picture, Michael.
