A Weekend Adventure to Celebrate Will

Sure, we’ve been on the road for 2 years, but somehow a weekend of hotel stays felt more like roughing it than any night we’ve ever spent in an RV. Suddenly, it was possible to forget a toothbrush or beloved baby doll. We were taking the truck and leaving our home behind. For Will’s birthday,Continue reading “A Weekend Adventure to Celebrate Will”

Our First Negative Harvest Hosts Experience, Alpine, Wyoming

In our previous half dozen stays through Harvest Hosts, we have had nothing but rave reviews, so we should have known something was bound to happen. As we continued our journey across southern Wyoming from Colorado to Idaho, we wanted to make the trip quickly, with only 1-night stays before arriving in Rexburg for aContinue reading “Our First Negative Harvest Hosts Experience, Alpine, Wyoming”

Boondocking on BLM Land, Sinclair, Wyoming

We finally boondocked on BLM land! I am not sure what was holding us back, but our first experience at Dugway BLM outside of Sinclair, Wyoming was absolutely delightful. As in most things we are hesitant to do and only plan for a single night, we left wishing we could stay another day or 2.Continue reading “Boondocking on BLM Land, Sinclair, Wyoming”

Our Weekend at Curt Gowdy State Park, Cheyenne, Wyoming

We may have had the best campsite in all of Curt Gowdy State Park. Out the front door, we had amazing lake views. From the dinette, we had views of grassy hills where we saw deer roaming every evening and heard coyotes howling at night. Sure, the wind kicked up at the top of theContinue reading “Our Weekend at Curt Gowdy State Park, Cheyenne, Wyoming”

Seeing Our Journey at the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center, Casper, Wyoming

For almost a year, we have been moving across the United States with our most worldly possessions towed behind us, partially in search of the next place we will call home. Needless to say, our visit to the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center hit a little close to home for both Will and me, andContinue reading “Seeing Our Journey at the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center, Casper, Wyoming”

Blowing Away at Boysen and Hot Springs State Parks, Wyoming

The wind in Wyoming can be relentless, and even though we had not really experienced it yet, as we extended our awning on our arrival at Boysen Reservoir, I cautioned Will that we needed to keep an eye on the weather. Even with it at the forefront of our minds, the wind caught us bothContinue reading “Blowing Away at Boysen and Hot Springs State Parks, Wyoming”

Hiking to the Other Side of the Buffalo Bill Dam, Cody, Wyoming

Of all the hikes we did during our visit to Cody, this last one was simultaneously the easiest and the most challenging while also proving incredibly interesting. The trail offers virtually no shade (aside from a tunnel you walk through), and the information we found beforehand was a little sketchy on access (yes, you canContinue reading “Hiking to the Other Side of the Buffalo Bill Dam, Cody, Wyoming”

Our Hike Almost to Flake Lake, Wyoming

I should have been suspicious from the get-go. As we were driving up into the Beartooth Mountains, Will continued to talk up the hike we were going on and how easy it was. He had been on the trail about 2 years ago with my dad, uncle, and cousin, so he was overly excited toContinue reading “Our Hike Almost to Flake Lake, Wyoming”

Hiking Dead Indian Trail, Wyoming

One of my all-time favorite drives is up Sunlight Basin, through Dead Indian pass, and then on to Cooke City, Montana. Because I grew up here, this was a drive we would often make when we had visitors in town, so when I think of this area, I think of really fun memories with family.Continue reading “Hiking Dead Indian Trail, Wyoming”

Hiking Elk Creek Trail, Cody, Wyoming

One of the first hikes I ever remember going on with my dad was on the Elk Creek trail. We were camping down the road, and he and I went for a short, probably couple mile, hike. While my adult self would love to say this is where my love of hiking started and onlyContinue reading “Hiking Elk Creek Trail, Cody, Wyoming”
