The high plains of Union Pass, high in the Wind River Mountains.  At the summit, the Union Pass Historical marker makes a nice stopping point, and a short hike through a lupine meadow takes you to a ring of markers describing the colorful history of this pass. Not far from that point, at the top of the Continental Divide, at Triple Divide Peak, there is a place where a raindrop of water might begin a journey traveling to one of three water drainages: the Missouri, the Columbia, or the Colorado, depending on which side of the mountain the drop of water might land.
