As we began our descent into the Eden valley, the whole of the Wind River Range came into view to my east. To the northwest, the tips of the Wyoming Range, 100 miles away were sticking their snowy tops above the horizon.
After so many days in the desert, it was nice to see irrigated hay fields in and around Eden. This area has a very short growing season, so the only crop that is grown is hay. The Big Sandy River and Reservoir supply ample irrigation water.
