We did see one interesting thing during the drive that did not have anything to do with the Wyoming scenery. We saw our first "back pack" for a car!! An SUV had a back pack style luggage carrier strapped onto the luggage rack and hanging down over the rear window. And it was loaded (full).
The top of the mountain was several miles of open meadow/pasture land (free range) where we saw a very large flock of sheep and several cows just meandering across the road.
On the way down the mountain, we stopped at Shell Falls for some pictures. Shell Creek has carved a path through the rocky terrain and it now looks like a small canyon surrounds it. It is amazing to see so many different types of scenery in such a short drive. Our pictures will help explain.
The rest of the drive was just barren and desolate countryside (and it was a little boring).
We arrived at Absaroka Bay RV Park at 1:00PM. This is a fairly nice park with paved interior roads and pull through sites. And they have free WiFi (which is always nice). After setting up, we chill-axed for the rest of the day.
