Aug 20, 2015 - Shuffling Off to Buffalo

Our first stop on the trip to Washington was Buffalo, Wyoming. This was a two day layover. We took a drive through the Crazy Woman canyon, a wild ride on a mostly one lane dirt road through a canyon with breath-taking views. Interestingly, a sign stated that downhill traffic must yield to uphill traffic. Luckily we did not run in to many situations where we had to yield, because our truck is pretty wide, and the one lane road isn't. That evening we had dinner at the Occidental Hotel. This place has an interesting history. It was the hangout...

Jul 26, 2015 - Devil's Tower and Buffalo, WY

We spent two days at Devil's Tower, WY in a campground where you could see the rock formation from our coaches. Devil's Tower is prominent in the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind and they were showing it at the campground each evening. We had a nice gathering for birthday celebrations with a hot dog roast, cake and ice cream. We had a fierce hail storm one night but the hail was small in size and nobody's rig or car was damaged. Our next stop was Buffalo, WY. Our wagon master and tour guide had to have his rig towed to Gillette due...

Jul 12, 2015 - Interesting People

Yesterday was a scorching 99 degrees and today feels as though it will be, as well. We are thankful for air conditioning as we continue on I-90 west into Wyoming. How I always love that first glimpse of snow-capped peaks, even if we are melting out here on the prairie! Tonight, we are at the foot of the Big Horn Mountains in Buffalo, WY. Bev and Paul run the Big Horn Mountain Campground--such nice folks! They moved here from Massachusetts well over twenty years ago. We struck up a conversation as I was registering and Gary finally came...

Jun 13, 2015 - Buffalo, Wyoming

We left Devils Tower this morning and drove over to Buffalo, WY. It was just 2.5 hours driving time to get here. We wanted to get here early enough to do some sight-seeing. After lunch, we drove the nearly 65 miles from Buffalo to Tensleep on the Cloud Peak Skyway Scenic Byway. This route climbs over the Big Horn Mountains, one of the largest and most spectacular in Wyoming. This is another of those drives that offers new breath-taking views with every bend in the road. Today, we saw several deer, pronghorns, turkeys, a big moose and two...

May 12, 2015 - Buffalo, WY - Indian Campground and RV Park

Our trip from Custer SP, SD to Buffalo, WY was a pleasant 199 miles under cloudy skies. About half of it was on two lane US 16 which is a very good road with almost no traffic. The other half was back on I-90. It was definitely a much better trip Friday than it would have been on Sunday after a full day of snow on Saturday and it still snowing on Sunday. We are staying at the Indian Campground and RV Park which is a very nice park with huge, well-trimmed trees shading most of the large pull-through sites, but we elected the new, open spaces...

Sep 1, 2014 - Indian Campground, Buffalo, WY review

This is a very nice RV park. Close to Main Street, but it feels like you are in the country. Good 50 amp, water, sewer and clear cable. Wifi worked ok and we had about 3 bars on AT&T and Verizon. My dish did not work because of the trees, but they have spots with no trees if you need your satelite. Our spot was a nice long pull through with plenty of room. The have a heated pool and store with all kinds of nic nacs. It rained on us, but it was a nice change. The old town are and old hotel are neat to visit. We drove up Crazy Woman Canyon...

Jul 28, 2014 - Crazy Woman Canyon

WE LIKE TO TAKE BACKROADS AND THIS ONE WAS A FAVORITE OF THE LOCALS. WE DROVE UP IN THE BIGHORNS 25 MILES AND TURNED OFF ON CRAZY WOMAN CANYON ROAD. IT WAS A ONE LANE DIRT ROAD PAST STUNNING CANYON WALLS INTO THE MOUNTAINS. LOVED THE CREEK RUNNING BESIDE AND SOMETIMES IT WAS MORE LIKE A RAPIDS. SEEN SOME PEOPLE FISHING. SEEN SOME ROCK CLIMBING. AT THE ENTRANCE THEY HAD A SIGN SAYING...NOT RECOMMENDED FOR RV'S. WELL WE SEEN A TRUCK PULLING A 5TH WHEEL GO BY US WHEN WE WERE PARKED. LATER WE MET A PICKUP AND WE GOT OVER AS FAR AS WE COULD AND...

Jul 20, 2014 - To Wyoming We Came

Just another smooth driving day with no precious people to be found. Road construction leaving the Black Hills, however, was another story. This was the entire road through the mountains for fifteen miles with the roadbed completely removed. Rock, gravel, dirt and bumps at 15mph. Linda only got a couple of pics before the road got too bumpy for picture taking. Survived and are now in Buffalo, Wyoming along with the 90 degree temp. Tomorrow we cross the Bighorn mountains on our way to Watipi, Wyoming which is home base for two weeks.

Oct 18, 2013 - Wyoming, Buffalo

10/18 We wake up in Sturgis SD with wind driven snow and about 28 degress. Not perfect weather to pack up and get going but that is what we do anyway. Headed west to Wyoming and Devils Tower National monument. Pretty ride up. Inside the park and before we get to the visitors center we go through a huge praire dog (city?) hundreds of holes over a large area and you could see probably over a hundred over the area at the same time. Intresting fact every park has a coin the one for devils tower has the tower on one side and 2 praire dogs on...
