June 30, 2014 Travel to Wheatland Wyoming

This morning we packed up, hooked up, and were on our way north.

Interesting:

We are on the plains now – with a strong headwind Sad smile.  The topography changed every 20 miles or so from flat:

To rolling hills:

These rocks just appeared – strange:

And into Wyoming:

We stopped at the rest area/visitor center at MM-4.  Beautiful center with lots of parking plus an RV dump and water fill – we used both.  From there, we stopped at exit 7 and filled with gas at Flying J. 

Back on the road – snow fences – oh-oh:

We arrived in Wheatland, Wyoming and are staying at their city park – donation only:

06-30-14 C Wheatland Lewis Park (6)

Our site (with electric too):

06-30-14 C Wheatland Lewis Park (4)

They have a water spigot near us (the fifth wheel in the picture is filling with water) and a dump station at the other end of the park.  We had hoped to stay here until after the holiday but not sure if we could after seeing this sign:

06-30-14 C Wheatland Lewis Park (8)

Will see!

After setting up we took a walk around the park and then a ride around the little town – cute Smile  We also found another Moose Lodge and stopped in for their Happy Hour – another good time.

Tomorrow we will be doing some sightseeing so stay tuned and enjoy today.
