As we sought a campsite last night near Ft Collins CO, we learned that Frontier Days is in full swing in Cheyenne WY and that campsites and hotel rooms are a scarce commodity. We were lucky enough to score a tent site for last night but we now know that we’d rather not linger in the Cheyenne area these late July days. We stopped at the WY Welcome Center and got some great information. Now we are headed toward Guernsey and hopefully a look at one of the landmarks along the Oregon Trail.

    Sorry you’re missing Frontier Days, it was a blast when we were there. Good food, fun watching the rodeo events, all in all a good time!

      Frontier Days sounded like much more of a crowd scene than we’re in the mood for right now. Instead we’re having fun seeking out quieter places. At Lake Guernsey Sandy Beach there were only two other occupied campsites. At Scottsbluff National Monument we were the only passengers on the shuttle to the top so we had a great conversation with the ranger about the geology and cultural history of the area!

    When you see the wagon ruts of the Oregon Trail still today, it is amazing. It sounds like you are headed east but if you want to backtrack I think you would love the museum in Cody Wyo. The collection of western art work is breath taking. The drive over the Bighorn Mts is gorgeous. Little BigHorn battle field is worth a stop. Glad your trip is going so well and that you are having fun! Wishing you continued safe travels.

      Yes, we are moving east. We have a family commitment in a couple of weeks. However we certainly plan to return to explore more of this area. Little Bug Hirn id definitely on Our List! And a return to Cody also!

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
