Sep 11, 2018 - Boulder & New Fork

I spent a month in the Boulder WY area last July, reference Fly Fishing West Wyoming 2017 Adventure, for more details. High water from late spring snow melt, disappointed my first solo fly fishing adventure here. So I returned to close out my fly fishing adventure for 2018. Calling all DUMB/LAZY WY TROUT on New Fork River & Boulder Creek....

2018 RV Adventure

Aug 18, 2017 - Travel from Fort Collins to Boulder, WY

August 18 – Travel from Fort Collins to Boulder, WY Today, we climbed a couple more thousand feet and viewed miles of unique landscapes that were mostly dry. We arrived in Boulder, Wyoming without problems having stopped at several Shell diesel stations to enable our sensitive engine to sip only pure diesel fuel – no bio fuel. Our campground is 80 miles south of Teton National Park. From the campground, the mountain range to the west is hard to see through the haze. Tomorrow, we will head north and pass through the Grand Teton National...

2017 RV Adventure

Jul 30, 2013 - Boulder, Wy - July 2013

A one nighted at Wind River View RV Park. We had intended to stay here for at least a couple of days, but this park was not very desirable. It was a gravel, dirt & sand parking lot along the highway open to high winds. Turned out there was not a lot to see in the immediate area so we moved on. The park was the worst RPI park we have ever seen. Occasionally we come across a park like this that is Passport America, but not RPI.

Jul 2, 2012 - Boulder

Drove north 90 miles through more desert...but at least we are done going directly west. From here to Yellowstone we'll be heading mostly north. We are going to be in Boulder for a few days.....we're killing time because our reservation in the national parks is from the 6th on. Boulder has a population of 75. Although technically still High Desert, Boulder is pretty green, its in a valley with a least two rivers (creeks) running thru it. the RV park is wonderful, not crowded. And every site has at least two trees 20 feet high. They also...

We made a brief stop in Rawlins, Wy on our way to Boulder, Wy which is a very small town of less then 1000 people. Our campground, Wind River RV Park is small and really didn't have any amenities but because it is part of our club we only payed $10 a night with full hookups.

Dragon Tales

Jun 9, 2010 - Wind River View RV, Boulder, Wy

In the morning, we grabbed breakfast sandwiches from Sonic, waited till traffic settled down and departed. Knowing our drive today would only be about 85 miles, we’re not in a hurry. On this day we’re meeting Rebecca’s brother Tim and his wife Donna, for a total of 2 weeks of sight seeing, fun and enjoyment together. We’ll be at Boulder for 1 week, then move to Thayne for 1 week, together. Somewhere along the way up highway 191 we called Tim & Donna on their cell, we find out their only 4 miles ahead of us. They’ve come from a different...

Jul 19, 2009 - Boulder, WY

Our 125 mile drive to Boulder was very uneventful except for a bit of excitement as we were driving into Farson when a trucker used the CB to tell the trailer in front of him that his back door was open. We thought it was us until I realized it was the 5th wheel behind us and we learned this when the 5th wheel went around us. But, they didn’t have a CB and didn’t get told. Hope nothing bad happened. The first 25 miles of the drive is uphill all the way and when we drove most of it on our way to South Pass City, without the trailer, we...

2009 Explorations

Jun 1, 2009 - On our way to the Tetons

Well we got up this morning and said good-bye to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. It was a great stop and we both would love to return in the Fall and see the Aspens. There are nice people, good food and nice shopping and great scenery. We drove down through the Big Thompson river valley and through Loveland and got on I-25. Went past Ft Collins and on to Laramie, where we caught I-80 across Montana. This road traverses the high plains. We steadily climb to 8,000 feet and crossed the continental divide, not once but twice. This...

Aug 9, 2006 - After the Wagon Ruts

After the wagon ruts in Guernsey, we traveled across Wyoming to get to Jackson Hole and the Grand Teton Music Festival. Along the way we spent nights in Casper (at a tight little RV Park between Interstate 25 and a railroad track), Lander (in a nice RV Park adjacent to the first oil discovery site in Wyoming), and Boulder (where we met some neat people and saw some beautiful country). A little bit about each: Casper: nothing much to tell. The Interstate was under construction, we spent only one night, but did get out to dinner at Outback to...
