Photographing wildlife in Wyoming’s Wind River Basin can be an exhilarating experience. In this video, professional photographer Doug Gardner pauses from his wildlife photography tips to walk in the footsteps of Shoshone Indian history.
In search of wildlife, Doug and fellow nature photographer Jared Lloyd trek through the snowy landscape and come across some old Indian artifacts. You will learn how the Shoshone Indians used pit blinds and rock blinds when hunting sheep. Jared will show you a rock face etched with ancient Indian petroglyphs, some as old as 11,000 years.
Hike along with wildlife photographers Doug Gardner and Jared Lloyd as they explore the history of the Shoshone Indians in the Wind River Basin.
