Jun 22, 2017 - Sheridan, WY

We arrived after a VERY LONG day of 9 hrs! We were suppose to take another route but somehow didn't. Oh well never again. We were really tired. We have stayed in this campground before and wanted to visit Sheridan before but wanted to see Buffalo, Wy about 30 miles south and where the series "Longmire" is about sorta. Sheridan is named for General Sheridan of the civil war. There is the Sheridan Inn that Buffalo Bill Cody and co owned and operated. It was once considered the finest between Chicago and San Francisco from 1894-1896. The...

May 27, 2017 - Deadwood to Devils Tower to Sheridan, Wyoming

We left Deadwood around 7:25 am and headed through Lead, an old mining town, to Roughlock Falls. The road went up and down hills, and was curvy in places, and very pretty. The ledges in places were towering above us. This is the first place we have seen birch trees. The road up to the falls was dirt, but pretty smooth. We realized when we got to the falls, we could have parked where the dirt road started, and walked up a trail to the falls. The falls was beautiful, and there were walking paths and overlooks in places. As we headed toward...

May 25, 2017 - Sheridan

We arrived at the Sheridan Best Western hotel early evening, and the went out for a walk through town. All the shops were shut! We went into a bar called The Mint. We had a few drinks whilst looking at the decor, which had lots of ranch branding irons burned into the walls, and lots of mounted animals! We then walked to a local Mexican for dinner before heading to the hotel

Sep 29, 2016 - Made it to Sheridan, Wyoming

We had already disconnected everything except the electrical yesterday so this morning was all we had to do was unplug, back the truck under the trailer and raise the jacks. We said our goodbyes to Gordon, Sally, Doug and Glenda. Telling them we will see them next year. We got on the road around 9:30 and headed down Hwy 89. We had a very good weather and the skies stayed partly cloudy. It was 48 degrees when we started but after noon it got up to 74 degrees. It was still a comfortable day and we would of made good time if we hadn't of...

Sep 18, 2016 - Day 11, Wednesday Sept. 14

Only one quilt store in Sheridan. So -- after visiting the quilt store we head to Devils Tower. Geologist still argue over how Devil's Tower was created, but the Lakota have a story that explains it. It is a cave of a large bear, the ridges are the result of the bear sharpening his claws. What a great picture! We have a long drive, today so we head to Keystone and Mount Rushmore.

Sep 15, 2016 - Bighorn mountains

We started the day at the local museum that is about 2 blocks from the RV park. It told of the stories of Indian battles, coal towns that grew up and then vanished. The railroad came through Sheridan and that was the impetus for it's growth. We see lots of RR switching tracks in town. The museum had a very interesting exhibit about the Tongue River log flume that was built in the Big Horn mountains to bring railroad ties down from the mountain when the railroads were being built across the plains. These were great structures built in the...

Sep 14, 2016 - Fort Phil kearny

Today we drove south of Sheridan to the reconstruction of Ft. Phil Kearny that was the largest stockaded fort in the west, from 1866-1868. It was established to protect the gold seekers on the Bozeman trail from Indian attacks. There was a battle on 12/21/1866 that was the greatest defeat prior to the Battle of Little Bighorn. The Indians ambushed the soldiers and killed 81, there were no survivors. We toured the outlines of the fort but also saw a diorama of it in the visitors center, then went to the top of the hill the see the battle...

Mar 26, 2016 - More snow and a good travel day.

We were surprised when we got up to see more snow had fallen during the night. It looked to be about 2 more inches. We could see the snowplows going up and down the Interstate from the campground. We checked the traffic cameras along the interstate and could tell that the road was ice covered. Also the reports of slick roads and black ice were issued for I25. We kept watching the news and the road reports and as the morning passed the travel reports got better. So checking the weather forecast for Sunday and they were calling for stronger...

Sep 18, 2015 - Sadly leaving Montana, It has been a Great Summer!

This morning we gave everyone hugs and told them goodbye for this year. It has been a great Summer and we had alot of fun. I think this year has been busier than the other two years we have been here. It was sad to leave Gordon and Sally but we know we will be back next Spring for another Summer. We finally pulled out by 10:30am and got on the road. It always takes a bit longer to get hooked up and everything put away when you have been stationary for 6 months and out of practice. We had a beautiful day for traveling. It was cloudy the...

Sep 16, 2015 - Sheridan, WY

Started our drive to Sheridan from Billings, WY at 11 am, 129 miles, 2 ½ hours. We stopped at Little Big Horn (Custer’s Last Stand) again just to revisit the site. Didn’t stopped long…just pulled off at the first stop on the drive to look at the landscape. All the memories from our last visit came back. Al still thinks that Custer’s decision to split up this troops was a very, very bad one. Montana turned into Wyoming as we crossed the state line on I-90 E. The scenery didn’t change much…still big sky country. We did notice that the roads...

Jul 25, 2015 - Sheridan, WY

Saturday morning, we left Rapid City heading west. With one fuel stop and one quick stop for lunch, it took us about 6 hours of lots of up and down hill driving. Although the traffic was light, it was good to get to our destination of Sheridan, WY. We visited Sheridan in 2011 on our way to Calgary Canada and really liked this small town. They have a cute Main St. downtown with lots of shops and Sunday is polo day at Big Horn Equestrian Center. So after the long drive, we went out to dinner at the Chop and Rib house, which was recommended to...
