View from the Crows Nest area

From the Strawberry Creek cutoff road the Hudson-Atlantic City Road veers northwest, away from the trail route. But as it ascends to a high ridge above an area known as the Crows Nest it affords one more look over the upper reaches of the Sweetwater drainage towards the Continental Divide.

View towards South Pass -- the pass is to the right of the Oregon Buttes, visible here on the distant horizon
