Tuesday August 1, 2017 Continental Divide Trail Wyoming
Wyoming South Day 9
Posted in Kremmling Colorado
We woke up here on the hill tops of the Continental Divide trail and got ready to depart for the day around nine.
While I was sitting there these sheep showed up from somewhere on the hill in back of me.
Lots of animals up ahead
We headed out with Dennis and Cheryl leading with Marty following and then me going down this dirt road. Up ahead we can see some animals on the skyline.
The grass must have been just right in this area as we saw lots of animals.
Here’s some of the horses and maybe a mule or two in there too.
Some more of the horses. They look fat.
And there were more sheep in the area, here’s a few of them.
And black beauty up there by itself.
We continued on down the road in what I’d call high desert.
We had to make the right turns and sometimes we didn’t, but we always got turned around in the right direction eventually.
Only for the young
We ran into all these bikes by this intersection. They were headed south on the Divide trail and flew a British flag.
We were headed for Rawlins Wyoming to shop, do some wash and the others wanted to get some dinner.
Here we are doing the laundry. Patty did some of my socks for me.
Outside, I spied this buck roaming around town
Marty leads us to camp
We went to dinner and then Dennis and Cheryl went to find a motel and Marty and Patti and I headed up the road to find a camp spot which we did here.
I took a little walk up a hill by our camp and looked back down to our camp.
Wondering about this big pipe
On the hill top I found this gravity fed water pipe, about three feet in diameter. It didn’t seem to have any water right now and went down to where our camp was but couldn’t find where it went from there. This is just an air vent for the pipe.
When I got back to camp I found Patti taking photos of the sunset.
That’s our day. Tomorrow we continue south into Colorado.
Just wanted to express my appreciation for the wonderful photos that you post of your travels. By doing so, they take me to places I’ve wanted to visit, see and experience and now Imcan tick them off my bucket list. I hope your travels are safe and extremely memorable as I am sure they are.
Again, thank you.
