My two friends/colleagues and I just learned that we have been accepted into a volunteer program as part of the USDA Forest Service, so we get to take the Airstream from Connecticut to Wyoming!!
WOW! Afew months ago we applied to the program never thinking we'd actually be accepted, so now we are beside ourselves with excitement. We'll be in the area around Laramie in the Medicine Bow-Routte NF documenting the remains of a turn of the century town called Echo Lodge.
I guess I'll be doing sketching since I'm the artist among us. We're all middle school teachers so this will give us a wonderful topic for our "what I did for summer vacation" essays.
If any of you are from the area or if you've been there before, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, ie. what kind of clothing to bring, interesting sights or activities, etc.
