We were up and out early this morning heading northwest to Thermopolis.
On the plains – the sun was playing peek-a-boo with us:
Ruins – it looked like there may have been a cold storage cave behind it:
Little pockets of houses in the middle of nowhere:
Up and down roads:
Fencing and fence poles in piles:
The clouds are breaking up:
Oil, oil, and more oil:
Interesting rock formations:
More up and down roads heading to the mountains:
Boysen Reservoir and State Park:
Coming into the Wind River Canyon:
Thru tunnel number one:
Tunnel number 2:

Down into the canyon that follows the Wind River/Bighorn River and the Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railroad:
The northern mouth of the Canyon:
We landed at the Eagle RV Park where we are staying for one week – it will be good to sit for a while. Now that we have come thru the Wind River Canyon, we may just pack a lunch one day and explore it by car.
After setting up and a small storm passing, we decided to check out the town. Many of the roads in the town lead to Hot Springs State Park and we found ourselves on one of those back roads where we were treated to the local buffalo herd:
We parked the car and just watched:
Before long, they came down from the hill and crossed right behind our car:
They must be authorized personnel – LOL!:
A short video of their jaunt: http://youtu.be/VmapVgY_YLo
And away they went…..
We continued riding around and found the overlook to Hot Springs State Park:
We will definitely be checking the park out this week.
We ended our evening with a nice campfire chatting with our neighbors. Another great day.
