To the followers who posted comments related to our mail situation…. fortunately I have taken care of getting all of our bills handled online so not getting the snail mail is not a big concern. I still like to see what comes in periodically just in case though. You never know….

On Thursday, 8/26, we left Broken Arrow Campground about 8:30 on our way to Sheridan, Wyoming with a side trip to see Devil’s Tower. We arrived in Sheridan around 3:30. It was a hot one yesterday! It reached 99 degrees in the afternoon so the 5er was a little warm when we arrived and got set up at Peter D’s RV Park in Sheridan. Took it a while to cool down.
Devil’s Tower is a must see, at least once. As I have said about so many other things, it is amazing what mother nature can do!! We only drove up to the entrance to the park, took pictures and then we were back on the road again.

Charley and Cheyenne had a little excitement last night, got chased by a loose dog in the area! They made it back okay although both were a little flustered….. Charley has his protection ready today should it be needed.

We were pretty beat by the time we were finally able to relax so we called it a night early. Planning to get the oil changed in the F450 and get out and see Sheridan for a while today. Also planning to try out a local restaurant for dinner based on recommendations from Peter D.

As you will see in the pictures from yesterday the landscape changed on our trip here. The trees gradually disappeared and it became prairie grassland with very few trees scattered here and there. Quite a change from all the ponderosa pines in the Black Hills of South Dakota.

Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Devil’s Tower – Trees still present, they disappear later. Charley got a close-up of the markings on the Tower. They really do look like claw marks.
