I wanted to go see the other campground in Encampment; $5 a night and right on the river. I thought if it was really nice, I might switch sites for a few nights. I had the GPS coordinates and we set out yesterday afternoon. Well where the GPS said I was finished, there was nothing! So I went farther on this little dirt road, came to a sign that pointed towards the campground but still never did get there. I stopped a four-wheeler who said the campground was up ahead, so I kept going.
So we kept going, ever higher and higher, with the road deteriorating more and more all the time. It got down to a skinny little track with lots of sharp rocks sticking up. Pretty scenery though!
After going 8 miles on this little dirt road (that felt like twenty!) I came over a ridge and ahead of me, the road went straight up!
Oh no no no, HELL no! There is no way my Highlander would tow the camper up that hill! So I gave up. I turned around just past the little bridge and headed back.
And got my reward! Not a campground, but a bunch of Bighorn Sheep ladies, right next to the road! COOL!
That made it all worthwhile.

Super pictures of those sheep. Love them. Wonder where the boys were? That road reminds me of the straight up roads in Ecuador except there is no bus coming down that road at eighty miles an hour! Beautiful country you are making me homesick.
Ha Ha Susan, you’re right, that road looks a lot like yours in Ecuador!! I think the sheep live separately until it’s time to make more babies….then the males have to crack their heads together for awhile first, just like any male!
