Stops along the way include the Fort Bridger State Historic Site, which offers a museum and a great walking tour around the old fort site, including some restored historic buildings.Uinta County lies in the southwestern corner of Wyoming.Formed in 1869 as one of the five counties of Wyoming Territory, Uinta County originally stretched from Utah to Montana.
The national park, the nearby Bridger-Teton National Forest, and the resort area around Jackson, combine into one vast outdoor playground that has something to offer in every season.
Whitewater rafting, hiking, horseback riding, fishing, lake cruises, snowshoeing, and skiing are just some of the possibilities.
Geographically, Uinta County encompasses two separate watersheds: the Bear River and the Black's Fork of the Green River.
They are separated by a series of low mountain ranges known throughout the state as the Three Sisters; their local name is simply the Divide.
All this history comes alive in the center's multimedia presentation, living history demonstrations, guided hike, and special events.
