With temperatures expected to be pushing 100 today, we got an early start on our trip from Kaycee to Thermopolis. I had been down to the Chris LeDoux Memorial Park earlier in the week but didn’t take any photos, so before leaving today I walked down there to get some pictures. For more information about Chris LeDoux and the park, you can read about it here.
After getting on the road, our first stop was in Casper to take on some fuel at $3.839 a gallon. From there, we drove through a few towns that have obviously seen better days.
And a lot of the usual high country desert scenery.
We eventually got into the Wind River canyon area and the scenery improved.
We drove through a series of three tunnels.
We followed the Wind River through the canyon.

While stopped in a construction zone, there were some beautiful home perched above the red bluffs.
We arrived in Thermopolis and were able to snag a couple of nights at the Eagle RV Park which was probably lucky as the Wyoming State H.O.G. (Harley Owner’s Group) is here for the weekend. After lunch, we drove around town to look at the hot springs and bison area.
Yes…we know buffalo are dangerous…bison are dangerous too.
This group does appear to be pretty laid back.
There are also dinosaurs in Thermopolis…we’ll find out more about them tomorrow.
Several people seem to be enjoying the hot springs.

This was an informational sign about Tepee Fountain and how it’s evolved over several years.
Tepee Fountain. We also found a similar fountain in town.
We returned to the RV for dinner and an evening doing our computer and tv thing. That’s it for today!
