a little behind on the Cirque comments but... Last summer ended up in
Lander and there is a state park called Sink Canyon where a trail heads
right up to Lonesome Lake and the alternate for the Cirque.  Nice trail and
you can continue north on the alternate or head into Lander if you're sobo.
In Lander an angel gave me Beartooth Publishing's Wind River Range map that
shows the whole thing. Hope this helps.
