Today, since we did not want to leave Cheyenne alone until after we knew for sure she was going to be okay, we took a ride out to the Wild Mustang range on Whistle Creek Road. This is between Cody and Greybull and it is an open range that is dedicated to the wild mustangs. We saw some mustangs but had to look at them through binoculars so good pictures were not possible. They do not allow you to get close to them. We do have a couple of long shots included below. Since I have loved horses since I was a little girl, the trip was well worth it to me.
We also saw a pronghorn antelope standing in the middle of the road and we weren't sure if he was ever going to move out of our way. He just stood there staring at us for the longest time. But it did give us a chance to get some good pictures of him. Beautiful animal!
Unfortunately we did not see any black tailed prairie dogs that the brochure said lived on this same range. Seeing them would have been special. Maybe another time.
We got to talk to the grandchildren (and their Mom and Dad) tonight on Skype. That was special because it has been several days since we last talked. And we grandparents will suffer from withdrawal symptoms if we do not get to see and talk to them frequently. I just wish that Skype was a little more reliable than it is. The purchased version probably is better (we use the free one). But we get it done, even though sometimes we have to hang up and start over.
The rest of our day was spent just relaxing at the campground, except for a quick grocery run before dinner.
If all goes well, we are planning to go the rodeo tomorrow night. That should be fun!!

During our drive, we saw a little of this
And a LOT of this!!
