No matter how many times you visit “The Sinks” you’ll leave scratching your head and wondering where the water goes. Sinks Canyon State Park is just outside of Lander in central Wyoming where the Popo Agie River (pah-PO-zsha) literally vanishes into a large limestone cavern and reemerges ever so quietly a half-mile downstream in a calm, trout-filled pool.  Wildlife viewing is particularly special in the area where bighorn sheep like to claim stretches as their own. Let them. You are only visiting. They live there.

The hiking and biking opportunities are tremendous too.
