Heading north from Flaming Gorge we settled into a beautiful little BLM campground about an hour south of Jackson, WY. Located at 7500 ft, it was in the 70’s during the day and dropping into the 30’s at night. With snow-capped mountains all around us, and at $5/ night, this was dry camping at it’s best. Leonard got to put his new solar panels to work and everything worked like a charm.
We saw several of these animal crossing overpasses on this stretch of road. The only place we’ve seen them previously was in Banff Nat Park in Canada and we weren’t aware they were in use anywhere else.
One day we went to a local hot spring tucked away in the Bridger-Teton National Forest. While getting out of the car we were startled to see this llama train headed towards us. They were all filthy dirty but with big smiles after returning from camping in the back-country, during which they had encountered some pretty bad thunderstorms. I’m surprised they didn’t just stop in for a quick dip at the hot spring.
