A two-mile high tundra sweeps for 10 miles from Herd Peak, 9,800’,
and eastward to Jerry Peak, 10,010’. Unusual and incredible, this
sagebrush steppe offers solitude and 360 degree panoramic vistas.
Here one is surrounded by wildness.
Westward are the White Cloud Peaks, and Sheep Mountain and
Bowery Peak rising above East Pass canyon. The Pioneer Mountains
are south, and the Lost River Range to the east. Early summer
wildflowers brighten the windswept, barren ridges.
Deep drainages of East Pass, Meridian Creek, Middle Canyon,
Herd Lake and Twin Bridges provide world class elk habitat. The
vast sage landscape hosts antelope and sage grouse.
Willowed-canyon bottoms have moose and beaver. Hidden Lake Basin
provides water for ducks and geese in a sagebrush sea.
