We are heading west and down out of the mountains to Ten Sleep, WY. For the last 10 days, we have been boondocking. It is time to have all the hookups for a few days.
The drive down was really pretty.
The canyon that the road follows gives us views of steep walls of rock far above us.
The name of the mountains is no longer very relevant. Though the area was known for Bighorn Sheep, they are almost completely absent from the mountains. Hunting, disease and human activity has reduced the population to near zero. Only a small number have been reintroduced to the area in an attempt to repopulate in these mountains.
We did not see any while we were in the area.
Next stop, Ten Sleep which gets its name from the number of "sleeps" or days travel between two locations as in ten days either direction from "Ten Sleeps". The locations are in question. Some say between Bridger, Montana on Clarks Fork and Casper, Wyoming or it was between Yellowstone and Fort Laramie.
Ten Sleeps has a population of 206. Those visiting the RV park easily raise that number by 50%. The town has a filling station, general store, saloon, and a brewery but no traffic light or stop sign on the main highway.

Mountain Views are great but I had to acknowledge the Serenity being your vehicle in the Gps screen in the one pic.

Yes. Loved it when I found the Firefly icon. People have made them for lots of sci fi ships.
