Popo Agie Falls,Wyoming

You want to know where it comes from and where it’s going. It is sometimes whipped to whiteness. Clean and cool. Wet and soothing. We marvel at cascading blasts and trickling streams. There may be the desire to remove footgear and soak. Find your own waterfalls in Wyoming.
Here are just three of the hundreds of choices:

Popo Agie Falls - Popo Agie is pronounced Po-PO-zsha.

Sinks Canyon State Park (west-central Wyoming, near Lander)
The name comes from the Crow Indians and means “tall grass river.”

A relatively painless 2.5 mile hike to the falls opens to quiet wilderness almost immediately. Early morning treks will most surely result in numerous creature views such as moose or mule deer. A unique downriver feature is Sinks Canyon where the river vanishes (sinks) into a large limestone cavern and re-emerges (rise) half a mile downstream in a calm, trout-filled, pool.

Further information can be obtained via the visitor center located near the “sinks and rise.” The center is open Memorial Day through Labor Day weekends, 9 to 6 daily.
