Day 3: Our third day will be a layover day at Lozier Lake. Passing by several beautiful lakes we will day hike off-trail about three to four miles to the top of Squaretop Mountain at 11, feet for spectacular views of the surrounding valleys and peaks, including the Green River Lakes from where we started. If the weather is not good, we will delay our layover day until later in the trip, where we will have another chance to get to the summit of Squaretop. Day 4: On day four we will continue along the New Forks Trail toward Clark Lake, veering off-trail toward Glover Peak where we drop our packs at about 11, feet and hike to the top of Glover Peak 12, feet.

Add another mile and feet up and feet back down to day hike to Glover Peak. By the end of the morning we will reach Elbow Lake at 10, feet and continue on to Shannon Pass. It is a three-mile, round-trip day hike with elevation gain of 1, feet to reach the top. We will then continue another 1. Day 6: This morning we will day hike up to Knapsack Col, our highest point on the trip, with a stop at a beautiful waterfall along the way for lunch.
The meadows leading up to Knapsack Col are full of wildflowers. We will plan to return to our camp near Dale Lake by about 4 p. Our hike to Knapsack Col is seven miles round-trip with a 1,foot elevation gain and loss.
Day 7: Today we continue our hike mostly downhill into Trail Creek Park, where we join the Highline Trail and continue through Three Forks Park to Beaver Park 8, feet and camp, arriving by early afternoon. From Beaver Park we will day hike up the steep, but beautifully scenic trail to Granite Lake at 9, feet for glorious views.

If the weather on Day 3 was unfavorable, we will arrive in Beaver Park on Day 6 so we will have another chance on Day 7 to summit Squaretop. Day 8: On our last morning we will start early, watching the sunrise over the verdant Green River Valley and Squaretop Mountain as we hike back to our cars at 7, feet elevation. It is about nine miles along good trails to our starting point. We should arrive at our cars by about noon and then caravan back to Pinedale for a well-deserved celebratory lunch at a local cafe.
Please note that the itinerary may have to be changed depending on weather, the strength of the group, campsite availability, and trail conditions. Consider flying in and out of Salt Lake City, the closest major airport. There are regional flights available to the airport in Jackson, Wyoming, which is closer to Pinedale, but they are often more expensive.
Shuttles between Jackson and Pinedale are also available. The leader will provide information to help coordinate ride-sharing to the trailhead.
Our preference is for everyone to stay at the Rivera Lodge , where the owner will prepare an excellent early breakfast for us before our drive to the trailhead. Rivera Lodge is also close to restaurants and the Great Outdoor Shop, in case anyone needs last-minute gear or advice.
Please do not make non-refundable travel arrangements until notified to do so by the trip leader. Our first trip meal will be lunch on our first day and the last meal will be breakfast on our final day. Trip meals will include some meat but vegetarians can be accommodated. Trip participants share in meal preparation and clean up.
Like many writers who become directors, Sheridan is a bit too fond of his character-revealing speeches when he could reveal character by more economical means, like the little bit when the Las Vegas-based Agent Banner comes in with weather-appropriate clothing, and the tribal police chief Graham Greene pulls the tag off her jacket.
This minute film would have been better at 15 to 20 minutes shorter. The extended flashback at the climax detailing what happened to Natalie is a regrettably clumsy misstep, too. People really should cast him in roles other than ones that are specifically Native American. Sheridan is clearly still learning his craft as a director, but this debut of his shows his potential.
