Pinedale Things to Do
The Aquatic Center
Pinedale has reaped a bounty recently with all the oil and gas exploration and one gift the city received was the new Aquatic Center. For a day fee of $5.00 you can have a hot shower, swim in the pool, play games or just lounge in the lobby.
A great place to clean up after your hike in the Wind River Mountains.Related to:

Museum of the Mountain Man
The museum provides a visual and interpretative experience into the era of the Mountain man and provides a comprehensive overview of the Western Fur Trade's historical significance. Located in the heart of the country that was once the hub of the Rocky Mountain Rendezvous system (six of the rendezvous of the early 1800's were held in the Green River Valley near present day Pinedale, Wyoming), the Museum stands as a monument to the men and the commerce that opened the West. The musuem has exhibits on the fur trade, western exploration, and early settlement of western Wyoming. Living history demonstrations, lectures on exhibits and children's activities are available during the summer months.Related to:

Asian Family Resturant (used to be Moose Creek ): Fine Asian Cusine
Excellent Chinese with a flair. Nice decor, Asian wait staff in white shirts and black pants.
I was so surprised to see a Chinese restaurant in Pinedale I had to stop. DOUBLE SURPRISE! This is no "China Buffet" or "Super 8". All the food is cooked to order and you are waited on by real Asians dressed appropriately for fine dining. I had Lo mein and Egg Foo Yung. The Foo was a different recipe I had ever had. Not the regular omelet with gravy, but patties of some sort with veggies and sauce layered on. Delicious.Related to:

So this is one of those places that none of the food is great but not of it is bad. Kinda like a jack of all trades menu. The Menu has breakfast, lunch and dinner. There also is a trading post to get all your goodies while you wait.
Favorite Dish: What ever you get, you'll be ok with.
IF YOU LIKE MY POST PLEASE GIVE POSITIVE FEEDBACK, THANKS.
If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.
Take a step back in time....
Favorite thing: If possible, plan your trip to Pinedale the second weekend of July. This is when the Green River Rendezvous is held. It's a reenactment of a forgotten way of life....that of fur traders, mountain men, Plains Indians. Everywhere you look there are people dressed up as such. There are lots of arts & crafts vendors available, plenty of activities to choose from, and just a great weekend all around.
Fondest memory: I will definitely miss the "laid back way of life" feeling that Pinedale seems to embody. I will also tremendously miss the scenic view of the mountains surrounding Pinedale. The Wind River range is absolutely breathtaking!Related to:
