Last Saturday, descendants of the O'Brien family completed a family project that involved many of its modern-day members. According to the project's website, www.triplepeak.com, the new Triple Peak Lodge looks like an old historic hotel, complete with a western-looking old false front and narrow windows. Located approximately 25 miles northwest of Big Piney and 30 miles southeast of Pinedale, you have to travel 20 miles on a windy gravel road to reach the serene lodge.
Built by family members Toni David, Clint Gilchrist, Kent Profit, Shirley Setzler, Kristy Sims and family, Laurel Profit, Cheryl and Vince Pierce and family and Tanya and Travis Elliott and boys, the lodge perches atop a hill "overlooking the South Cottonwood Creek valley facing the Wyoming Range" but Gros Ventre and Wind River Mountain views are awesome as well.
To get to Triple Peak, take Cottonwood County Road 117 for 10 or 11 miles, turn right, and cross South Cottonwood Creek. At the top of the hill, turn left on Profit Road, the lodge is about a mile down the lane. Reservations are required 24 hours in advance, and can be made for meals, family reunions, hunting trips, or horseback riding and fishing, among other seasonal activities.
Call Triple Peak managers Cheryl and Vince Pierce at 307-276-3408 for information.
