Out of Riverton, Wyoming this morning we headed south on WY-789 toward Lander then east on US-287 through places like Sweetwater Station, Jeffrey City, and Muddy Gap. Nineteenth Century Emigrant Trails passed through here. At the rest area at Sweetwater Station we pondered family history and whether Charity passed here as she traveled the Mormon Trail. Certainly she would have loved to travel in our truck and teardrop combo rather than a mule drawn covered wagon. We didn’t stop at the Split Rock Cafe but headed to Muddy Gap to refuel and learn that they permit overnight boondocking at the Three Forks Gas Station/Store if you request permission first.
