Bighorn Mountains

Our first boondock gave us a hint of the Bighorns; beautiful and steep.

Time for bed.

The second day let us know that we came too early. Our goal was to drive to a trailhead for the Medicine Wheel, and then hike in to see it, and take a picture for Martha McCartney who missed it on trip West. Sorry Martha. We tried. A mud hole about a quarter mile stopped Turtle. We backed to the road. The option was a six mile round trip at 9,000 feet with snow and mud. Claire was up for it but I had my doubts. Off we went, Claire far ahead. After a mile I noticed I was catching up to her.

If the snow blower has been stopped , so have we been stopped.

    After a couple of days in the Jackson Hole area, biking and boondocking and one brutal road to a Forest Service campground with an amazing view of the Tetons, we turned north to Yellowstone. It was cold, but not nearly as cold as our first visit on our tandem in 1995. A heavy wet snow wet us and our gear. Fortunately Park Service rangers take care of their own, and aa friend of Claire’s took us in while we dried out and the weather improved.


We were just passing through this time, disappointed that Beartooth Pass was still closed with four feet of new snow. We had ridden the pass years before from the south and hoped to repeat from the north. The snow gods did not allow.
Next up a boondock the Bighorn mountains.
