Oct 1, 2015 - GPS quits on the way up to the Bighorn Mountains

Written November 16, 2015 I continue to be way behind in my journal writing, not to keep you uninformed on our location, but this chore has been too much of a burden of late. Oh well, time to buck up and get back in the saddle. So to speak. LOL As we left Cody this morning I noticed the in dash GPS was not working correctly. As with most things electronic, if you turn them off and then back on, they will reset when re-started. Not so today. I called River Park, the manufacturer of the unit and they walked me through some trouble shooting...

Aug 1, 2013 - Ten Sleep, WY

What a drive!! We made it the whole way to Ten Sleep, Wyoming today. We drove through some horrendous storms starting with a base-wide announcement over the loudspeaker system first thing this morning. Ellsworth Command warned everyone to seek shelter immediately due to severe lightning storms (which hit 5 minutes later). At a couple points during the drive, the rain was so hard that we had to slow down to about 30 on the Interstate because there was so much water flowing across the road. Other than that, in the clear parts of the drive...

Jun 24, 2013 - Riding the Cloud Peak and Bighorn Scenic Byways

Riding the motorcycle 261 miles on two gorgeous scenic byways was another very full day for us. The first art of our ride was the Cloud Peak Scenic Byway (highway 16) west out of Buffalo. We rode through the southern Big Horn Mountains and saw breathtaking vistas of distant snowcapped peaks. We have ridden this stretch of road several times on other trips to Wyoming, and it remains one of our favorites. Powder Pass and Ten Sleep Canyon are awesome, and we also like that there are signs explaining the layers of rocks and from what era they...

Aug 11, 2011 - Sitting Bull NFCG

Sitting Bull National Forest Campground is very scenic with the Bighorn Mountains in view and a creek that runs along side and several lily ponds next to the campground sites. While we were there, 12 days in all, we noticed almost everyone from Wyoming with campers had ATV's. Actually the host, Cindy mentioned one weekend there were 49 four-wheelers in the campground. Everyone followed the rules and the ATV's were well behaved. Many of the fishermen got there limits in the creek. One of them told us the further up the creek you go the...

Jun 22, 2011 - Scenic Drive To Ten Sleep

Beautiful drive from Buffalo to Ten Sleep. After that - not so scenic. I was very happy that I was in my car and not the RV. This route is very curvy with lots of switchbacks . One section of road is a 6 percent grade for 10 straight miles. Tough on an RV going up or coming down. Lots of construction going on - at some points the road narrows quite a bit. Ten Sleep has a population of 308 people ( went through two other towns where the population was in the 100's). It is called Ten Sleep because of it's location. It is midway - ten sleeps...

Aug 13, 2010 - Cloud Peak Skyway Scenic Byway

On Friday the 13th, we rode 127 miles on The Cloud Peak Skyway Scenic Byway (highway 16) from Buffalo, over Powder River Pass (9666 feet) and through Ten Sleep Canyon to the town of Ten Sleep, and then back to Buffalo. The Skyway provided great views of the pine, spruce, aspen, and fir forests of the Big Horn National Forest, the Big Horn Mountains and a view of Cloud Peak, the highest peak in the Big Horn Mountains at 13,167 feet. Here is what the Ten Sleep website says about the canyon area: “On the west side of the Bighorn Mountains,...
