Shortly before 9 yesterday morning we pulled out of our campsite at Circle J Ranch in Ten Sleep, WY after our three weeks of volunteering at this United Methodist campground.
We crossed back over the mountains on US 16 with their switchbacks and breathtaking scenery for the 63 miles to Buffalo, WY and I90.
On I90 we headed north into:
After a 160 mile, 3 hour drive we arrived at:
for the next week. What a great find. The campground is immaculate. Back in SD when we registered we were given cold bottles of water. This campground goes one better - our choice of ICE CREAM!
Our site is ideal
The view as we walk out of door could not be better. Rolling hills with mountains in the distance.
Up the hill behind us is part of the Little Bighorn Battlefield. We climbed the hill and decided for our health we needed to do this at least once a day. Yea, right.
Yesterday we drove over to the battlefield entrance but decided since it was close to 100 out we would not be getting out to walk around. We will leave that for another day. However I checked the forecast and the predictions show from 96 to 102 for our remaining time here. Our visit will take place first thing in the morning as the temperatures go down into the 40's at night.
The road goes through some private open range land. We saw these two coming up a ravine and it was evident they would be crossing in front of us. We stopped to allow their passage. Aren't they too beautiful?
