Sweet. I can identify several ranges in the top two photos.

BTW, our own bearbnz has several great shots he's taken over the Sierra.

Okay:

Very top on the horizon is the Centennial range, dividing Montana and Idaho.

Prominent towards the top is the Teton range; just above its left side is the Big Hole Mountains.

Well, that is pretty easy. Tetons obviously, and then some shots of what must be the very north end of the Winds, probably the headwaters of the green river. Then some nice shots of Various types of folds in the Wind River Basin

Great pictures DMT! I wished I had my camera on the plane in Oct. 2008 on a flight from Salt Lake City to home in Cody - it was a perfectly clear day and we crossed the Winds heading NE just north of the Gannett area, which was pretty amazing to see from that vantage...

I remember when the only commercial flights into JHOLE were on the world's most dangerous Commercial Aircraft, the Convair 580, and you had to go through Denver or SLC. Hit an airpocket over Union Pass and dropped a good deal in '74. Half the flight yakked. At 10 I decided to give up foods before getting on small aircraft.

Thanks for sharing that, gonna share this with family and friends.

Looking at all those superb photos makes me think we need an SP photo page of the same name as this thread.

Unless we already have one?
