This is the Eisenhower Tunnel vicinity. That's Loveland Ski Area that is the most visible, A Basin a little to the upper left from that, and a bit of Keystone under the wing. Torreys Peak/Grays are visible on the left. The vast expanse in the background is South Park.

Funny! I just kinda scrolled through the pic ititially and didn't give it a very close look but you are right. I just happened to be on Sniktau last week. I would bet that whoever took this pic knew what area they were taking a pic of.

I think I like this challenge! It took me awhile, but knowing the place is supposed to be in western Wyoming, the Green River Lakes finally gave me a clue.

Franky guessed right, the 4th and 5th picture is a view from near Garnet Pk, looking NWN down the Green River Valley.

I can see we're over the Wind River Range.

Ugh.. Dave K and Franky beat me... it is the Grand Tetons in #1, #2, #3. Wow, they look a lot different from the air!

... I'll keep looking...
