What a great day! After missing the photograph of the big horn ram last evening, the Lord blessed us with one right beside the road today! Hayden was so excited. But that was just the first round of excitement. We saw quite a few females along the way, but he was the only ram. We rode to Wall and went in the Wall Drug Store - much ado about nothing, except we got some fun shots of Hayden on a bucking bronco, driving a wagon train, and riding a jackalope. We also got ice cream cones on this hot day.
Before we returning to the campground, Phil said the car thermometer read 93 degrees for the outside. While I type this, Phil is with Hayden at the pool.
OK - back to the adventure of the day. We went down a dirt road toward Scenic. (Phil hated every inch of that road.) We saw a Prairie Dog town and lots of bison. When Hayden saw the bison, I thought he was going to leap for joy right out of the car! After seeing the bison and prairie dogs, Phil turned around as soon as he could to get us back on paved road. We enjoyed the yellow mounds which were left after the sea receded.
We also attended the fossil talk by the ranger, which we all enjoyed. I was surprised to hear there were no dinosaurs here because the area was covered with the sea. There are still lots of fossils of extinct animals and sea life.
OK, I am going up upload some photos for the map. Have you been clicking on the spots on the map to see the photos from there? I like this travel blog site!
Have a great day!
