Oct 4, 2012 - Crazy Woman Canyon

We had another one of those "WOWSER" days today. We drove through the Bighorn National Forest with stops along the way at beautiful scenic views. The most exciting part of our drive was Crazy Woman Canyon Road. It is a dirt and gravel road and very narrow, but it was one of the most beautiful drives we have ever taken. The snow falling made it even more beautiful. Some of the rocks in the canyon are so huge, you have to drive around them in part of the road. We saw wildlife around every corner, pronghorn antelope, deer, rabbits, eagles...

Aug 20, 2009 - Big Horn National Forest, WY

This will be the first night we've spent in complete darkness. We spent today driving the loop inside Grand Tetons National Park. Those mountains are mind blowing. Pictures cannot do them justice. The tallest, Grand Teton herself, stands nearly 14,000 feet above sea level--7,000 feet above the valley floor. The mountains rise straight out of the ground and lakes without the hinderance of foothills and resemble the jagged peaks children draw when they think to draw mountains. From the park we set out east getting our first views of Wyoming...

Jul 23, 2009 - Bighorn Mountains - Burgess Junction

I returned to the trailer after lunch, turned on the air conditioner and took a nap. It has been in the mid nineties every day although it cools off at night. Around 4 PM I headed east for the Bighorn Mountains. It is official, there are Moose left in the US and specifically in WY. I saw 5 bulls and a cow with calf on my way back from Burgess Junction. Mule deer were everywhere and I saw one herd of Elk up in the high meadows. This KOA camp ground has a cafe named Dutchie’s, with a different theme menu each night, very unusual for a KOA, in...

Q's Journey 2008

Jun 2, 2008 - WY, Bighorn Mountains Snow on Ground

From Buffalo, WY to Worland, WY is only 93 Miles but it took me over 3 1/2 hours to make the trip. Some time I was only going 20 mph uphill with the trailer and then I was going 70 down the mountains and my brakes started heating up. This is the only road that you take from Buffalo, WY to Yellowstone National Park and it is some 240 miles. Most of the roads that lead to campgrounds were closed and really don't open till the snow melts. During this 93-mile trip I saw 4 trucks, I counted them, and no more than 25 cars. Cell phone did not...
