Gannett Peak is the highest peak in the Wind River Range, and the highest peak in Wyoming. It rises on the Continental Divide, just southeast of Yellowstone National Park and the Teton range. It is a snow peak in a range of rock peaks. It is flanked by five glaciers and its summit is snow-capped. Despite its uniquely snowy character, however, it is barely visible from the lowlands, hidden by other high peaks that surround it.
