I just arrived back from two weeks in Northern Wyoming. The main focus of the trip was helping out on a dinosaur dig (awesome, I know) in the Bighorn Basin, but we made time for some extracurricular exploration.
So, sit back, relax, and smell the prickly pear flowers….
The Bighorn Canyon is surely one of the best kept secrets of the West, giving the Grand Canyon a run for its money.
Perhaps the highlight of the trip was the pig races. That’s right, the pig races. If you ever happen to be in Red Lodge, MT, make sure to make this your top priority. In fact, make a visit Red Lodge, MT your top priority and enjoy the pig races.
Grab a Moose Drool, pick a pig (Waltzing Fatilda, perhaps? Sausageawea is another good one. Hillary ClintHAM won’t let you down!), and watch the little pigs run their dear, little hearts out because they know that a treasure chest of leafy greens awaits them.
We took a trip up to Cody one night for the rodeo…yeehaw!
My favorite painting in the Buffalo Bill Center of the West:
We cooked dinner every night in our little farmhouse.
Fried bread was made. And all was well.
But that big sky, mmhmm.
