2014-06-26 Big Horn National Forest - Wyoming

We had a wonderful adventure with Hunter and Jax and a good time was had by all (we hope), BUT we did need some R&R before we started heading north. We checked the map and found the nearest expanse of isolated mountainy green, Big Horn National Forest in Northern Wyoming. Seriously, in Wyoming all you have to do is close your eyes and throw a dart and you will find isolation and most likely mountains. Fun Fact -  Wyoming is the THE LEAST populated state!!

Up up up the mountain we went. If you are an RV'er you know to take these warning signs seriously. Lots of squiggles- bad. 10% grades - bad. Michael said it wouldn't be THAT bad, but after some "discussion" we decided not to go via 14A!!! We did take a drive in the car just to see how it was.



This is how it was!




We found a lovely campground at Sibley Lake and it even had electricity. The weather was mostly good. The windshield is NOT dirty  -it is snowing out!!!! We had a mini blizzard and ended up with 1/2" of snow.


Excellent wildlife sightings. Every evening we would take a drive and hunt for critters.
