At 9:30 this morning it was already 91 degrees in Buffalo, WY. But, there is still snow on the Big Horn Mountains.
I didn’t take pictures as we were going through the mountains today. I had already documented the most scenic parts when we came through in the Jeep.
On the other side of the mountains the land looks more like desert, very dry. Going through this area we did see several working oil wells.
Most crops and hay are irrigated. Beets seem to be the major crop. Corn is quite a bit behind what we have seen in Indiana and Nebraska.
On this 30 mile stretch of road we saw one tractor, one pickup truck sitting at a turnout and one more pickup just as we turned off of this road.
Coming into Cody the scenery gets better.
Coming into Buffalo Bill State Park
We had to go through three tunnels, none of them had signs indicating clearance measurements. There was plenty of room, but we would have been more confident going into them if it had been posted.
More scenery coming through the park. We’ll be coming back Monday to check this out a little closer. Tomorrow we have to do some "adult" stuff like getting groceries, prescriptions, washing the Jeep and cooking.
