Day Three: Dinwoody Glacier Gannett Peak Dinwoody Glacier An alpine start and hiking by headlamp allows us to arrive at the east face of Gannett Peak around sunrise. With clear skies this entire face glows a gorgeous orange (see photos). From here we see our ascent route up the infamous Goose Neck and the snow fields above.It feels like a setting in another, wilder world; civilization feels far, far away. The view of Mount Woodrow Wilson and Gannett Peak with the expanse of the sprawling Dinwoody Glacier below is unforgettable. So is the view of Fremont Peak and the Upper Fremont Glacier. dinwoody glacier gannett peak

The snowy crest of Gannett Peak rises in the heart of the most rugged and glaciated mountainscape in the American Rockies, dominating the northern Wind River Range.

Aug 11, 2019  We managed to cross all of the Gannett Creek crossings in the dark by log or rock hopping (thanks campsite buddies for the beta! ). We continued up the trail until its end at a glacial lake and lots of boulders below the Dinwoody Glacier (its all glacier on the USGS mapsad). We saw several lessbuggy campsites along this boulder field. Nov 04, 2006 Gannett Peak is the highest peak in the Wind River Range and the state of Wyoming. It is identified by it's broad snow capped summit. The peak is flanked by five glaciers: Dinwoody, Gooseneck and Gannett on the east. Mammoth and Minor glaciers on the west.
