A number of obscure, sometimes dirty and anonymous adventures can be had on the granite in the vicinity of the Shoshone power plant. You will have the place to yourself minus the roar of the interstate close by.

Getting There 

Take Interstate 70 to exit 23 (Shoshone). Hike upriver (east) on the bike path for a few minutes until the power plant's fence ends and you can hike uphill to the granite.
