Jun 4, 2019 - Greybull WY

Thursday was mostly a drive day from Spearfish to Sheridan, a stretch that we have now done 3 times in the last month. It ain’t a bad drive through some awesome scenery, interrupted by vast amounts of nothingness...and antelope...lots of antelope. We again pulled into Peter D’s RV Park in Sheridan so that we can snoop around the area on Friday. We got set up and were shortly on our way to Wyo Rib & Chop House down the street from the campground. We have eaten at the one in Cody a couple times and it’s been good but tonight’s experience was...

Aug 20, 2015 - Greybull, Wyoming

For our trip from Buffalo, WY, to Greybull, WY, we decided to take route 14 through the Big Horn mountains, which has to be one of the most beautiful drives in the country. We met a couple at our last park who said they come up from Colorado just to enjoy a drive across route 14. We were not disappointed. The ride up the eastern side wasn't all that spectacular, other than lots of switchbacks and climbing to about 10,000 feet above sea level. The ride down the west side was a different story! The canyon walls were absolutely amazing!...

Jul 9, 2015 - Devil's Kitchen and Shell Falls

We drove from Cody to Sheridan today. We have tickets to see the Sheridan WYO Stampede Rodeo Friday night. Along the route near the town of Greybull is an area appropriately named Devil's Kitchen. This is a geologic "depression" located about 10 miles east of Greybull. The many colors in the rocks, sand, lava and who knows what is out of this world. A friend of mine says it is what Mars would be like, at least in his imagination. I could see a Star Trek episode being filmed here! Here is a trivia item for you: there are at least 35 places...

Where RV Now?

Jun 4, 2013 - Medicine Wheel Scenic Byway

This was a beautiful drive over the Big Horn Mountains near Lovell, Wyoming. At one point we were ascending a 10% grade as we climbed toward the peak at more than 9,000 ft. elevation. The panoramic views from the numerous switchbacks were breath-taking.

Jun 1, 2013 - Big Horn Natl. Recreation Area

Probably thousands of tourists zoom thru this area on their way to Yellowstone and other more popular destinations every year, not realizing the magnificent scenery and outdoor activities they are missing. Big Horn National Recreation Area is definitely worth spending a few days hiking and sightseeing...

May 31, 2013 - Cloud Peak Wilderness

Continuing our journey on a drive from Buffalo, Wyoming to Greybull we inadvertently drove into a snowstorm at 10,000 ft. altitude in the Cloud Peak Wilderness. Temperatures were in the 50's at both ends of the route. But as we climbed higher and higher, the mercury steadily dropped and the snow began. Near the top of the pass, it was 27 degrees, with snow and ice build-up on the road. This was white knuckle driving!! The truck was having trouble maintaining traction and I could feel the trailer fishtailing slightly. At the crest I had...

Oct 8, 2011 - Cody to Greybull, WY

YEAH! We are finally back on the road! All systems are "GO" and we left our beautiful five-star campground, AKA M&P RV Repair, around 4:00 this afternoon. We are now at the Greybull KOA in, you guessed it, Greybull, WY. It was only an hour drive from Cody to here, but that's one less hour we have to drive tomorrow. No leaks, so far, and we are so glad we found M&P RV Repair in Cody. Great group of mechanics that got us back on the road with confidence. Hope I don't end up eating my words. Tomorrow we're on to - I don't know yet. Studying...

2011 Northwest Trip

Sep 13, 2009 - On to Yellowstone

Traveled from Hill City, WY to Greybull, WY. 350 miles. The road trip was as unique as ever. Oil rigs, coal mine, and more scenery. The KOA in Graybull was decided upon to be our home for the night. It was a tough towing day up and down the mountains. Just relaxed and shared tips with other travelers. The temperature was much warmer than the night before by about 20 degrees. Can't believe how fast the landscape and temperature can change out here. Turning in for a travel day tomorrow.

Jul 22, 2009 - Grey Bull, WY

I have settled into a KOA in Greybull on the Bighorn River and will stay for several nights. I plan on touring the area, wild horses, waterfalls, scenic highways, fishing (brook and brown trout) and indian sites. Have a wonderful night. I am planning a Greek dinner tonight, surprised that a town of only 1800 has Greek food. Good night.

Jul 2, 2009 - The little truck that could.

We had a really nice today. We got up and took off around 9 a.m. and headed for Greybull, Wyoming. This is a resting stop for the final leg to Yellowstone. Our big obstacle today was the Granite Pass. This was a climb up a 6, 000 foot elevation with a lot of switch backs and tight turns. Our Chevy Z71 did a wonderful job surprising. However, it felt like the little engine that could story. Luckily the speed limit was 30 miles up the road and we held at around 25 mph. The transmission and radiator fans turned on a few times to cool off the...

Jun 24, 2009 - Greybull, WY

Greybull, Wy is a very small town on the west side of the Big Horn mountains and is here mainly because of the bentonite mining. We picked this place to hang while waiting to go to Cody for their 4th of July celebration and are so glad we did. We drove the 160 mile loop that took us up into the Big Horns through a very nice canyon and then back down on a very steep grade that made us glad we didn't have the trailer pushing us from behind. The first photo is of a sign that is at the Burgess Junction (Bear Resort is a nice place to have...

2009 Explorations

Oct 20, 2008 - A Whole New World

I feel like I lived a completely different life in a completely different world and it was completely unexpected (probably because I’m blond and didn’t do my homework)! I did do some homework: I found the campground, I checked to see if it was open; I checked to make sure it had internet, but I didn’t study the geography. Hence, the surprise! By now, you’re probably wondering what I’m talking about. Today, we did some serious mountain climbing! We reached an elevation of 8347 feet! I’m pretty sure that’s considerably higher than Banff! I...
