Having lived here for so many years you would think we would get complacent about the Sinks. We don't. We head up there at least once a week and usually more, even in the winter. It is always beautiful and well worth the trip. If you are travelling through or staying for a few days make it a point to get up there and take in the natural beauty.

Sinks Canyon was a great little surprise. Only a 10 minute drive from where we stayed with pretty walks and scenery. It's well worth a visit. We took the loop road over the mountain and followed the unpaved routes. Some pretty fishing and boating lakes and picnic spots there. Ideal for all sorts of travellers really.

Sinks Canyon State Park just suffered from a fire that burned much of the south facing slopes of the canyon. The north facing slopes were not involved. Initially this may cause some to avoid visiting the area, but that would be a mistake. All the visitor facilities (visitor center, the sinks, the rise, campgrounds, etc.), are all intact and will re-open. The trails along the river were not impacted by the fire. Visiting the canyon now is a great opportunity to see the impact of wildland fires, marvel at the efforts to control them and watch natural forces at work. It will be fascinating to watch the burned areas regenerate over the next couple of years.

After all the grandeur of Yellowstone and the scenic overlooks on the drive into Lander, it was nice to have a small park to readjust your geologic scale to human again. The river disappears into the rocks at the bottom of a short trail and then reappears about a half mile later....up hill. There is a pond at this inflow and maybe two hundred trout make this there home. No fishing so you can see trout the size of Buicks below you. For a quarter you can feed them. Nothing grand and glorious but a nice quiet relaxing place.

We recently camped in sinks Canyon state park or a baseball game we attended or two days. The park was well maintained and the staff were attentive and helpful. its beauty says a mouthful you deinatly don't want to miss this opportunity I you in the area. I have a 11 year old son and a 10 year old son who just loved the park their favorite was feeding the large trout from the ledge. the hikes we went on were on very well kept trails and just spectacular the amount o rushing waters in sinks canyon is awe inspiring -- a definite must see!
