Granite Hot Springs which was cancelled due to forest fire issues. Great for a Family, fisherman and Off the Grid camping southeast of Jackson, Wyoming. Location is on this Thread and a MUST DO when fire is not an issue.

Plenty of pull outs downstream along Granite Creek. Kids will love it while Dad gets some fly fishing in this fast moving small cold stream. Some areas by the waterfall has steam and warm water flowing out of the sides!

East Off the Grid Boondocking, for those who are truly comfortable by yourself or with the locals on the weekends!

Shed stories must be like like fish stories. It's amazing how a spike Bambi shed turns into a an elk shed that requires a pack mule to get out of the forest

For YOUR 2017 Wyoming Adventure...

The elk was still.... attached at the time I found it! So beat that, Brent.

Some other Wyoming Boondocking Adventure photos.

These are 1915 to 1920 abandoned vehicles found in the Red Desert area south of the Granite Mountains and Jeffrey City, Wyoming. Nancy is taking a test drive. There is also a ravine where Model A's are pushed into a ravine to keep it from eroding. All of this is out there for you to find.

Shadow Mountain, again, with the Grand Teton to the west. This is National Forest and this has been discussed on the Forum. This was possible for most of the Adventurers... but some would have not enjoyed getting to it. This site was not among those scheduled.

The Moose are on the 'Up and Over' to Pinedale, Wyoming. This year... they did not stick around for us to see. But... maybe it is your turn to find them on, top.

All of these are available for you and 2017 Wyoming if you have Adventure in your heart and need an experience on your own time, your own schedule and your own company!

Seeing Nancy thigh deep in the creek at Dble cabin is quite different from the ankle deep water we waded in. Wow.

Wyoming is indeed the Land of Many Sites.

Mostly Off the Grid... Camp Sites, but many to pick from. You need no reservations for Boondocking. This also applies to Utah, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, some parts of southwest Montana in the High Country to the north of Yellowstone Park, and maybe if you look hard... Colorado, west of the Front Range.

... and of course, the elusive Jackalope of the Eastern Plains of Wyoming.

Ahhhh---A Jackalope, my favorite furry friend. When they are well trained, they are the least demanding pet in the world.
Ray you are such a great animal trainer, I know you have experience with a Jackalope.
Sir Guinness thanks you and so do we. AEW

Beaver Divide / Rim, Wyoming

The 'first Off the Grid' site was on a mesa overlooking a vast area known for Jade Slicks found in the gravels in the valley. Lander, Wyoming and Riverton, Wyoming to the North and Northwest.

We always camp on the rim. I include some photographs from the 2016 Adventure and several examples of the 'Wild Life' to be spotted in the area.

The Sawmill Creek area just to the West and a bit south of Lander, Wyoming... once in the mountains was a favorite for all. These are some random photographs of the access up the switchbacks. If you are tiring of these photographs... these are the second to the last for me to post.

Nancy and I have always enjoyed our Adventures in Wyoming. I hope you enjoyed some of the photographs, as a substitute of attending 2016... but these areas will be available in 2017, as well.

Unifreck provided the Biker Babe to pose on one of his electric 'cycles. A real treat at high elevations and a good Wyoming 'hoot'.

Between Laramie, Wyoming and Medicine Bow, Wyoming is... well, not a whole lot but wide open prairie and wind. Parking was never an issue. Even at the Bone Cabin pullout where Dinosaurs were first discovered along the Union Pacific Railroad during the 1860's at Como Bluff, near Rock River. We were there, folks! One shed was built of Dinosaur bones. The five foot tall femurs on both sides of the house front door were missing, since the last time I spoke with the owner, she was in her 80's living there forty years ago. The place is now in ruins, but we were free to wander around the yard at will.

Medicine Bow, Wyoming and home of the Virginian Hotel and... lots of open space. These are digging into what photographs I have left that may not have been previously posted.

As you get further north or south of I-80 to the west of the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains, there are Off the Grid campsites for everyone's level of comfort. The locals are happy to see you visiting... but, to get along with the locals... drop the attitude and just enjoy yourself.

We should open a drop box account and share the password among the participants. Then we could all upload our individual photo collections to the account and share them with the group.

Ray mentioned that double cabin was a big disappointment, but was actually one of my favorite campgrounds. The scenery made the long drive worth it, unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate. It is still in the running for an eclipse viewing campsite this August.

As Richard says 'Double Cabin was one of his favorites'. Imagine how the area looked before the forest fires. Most on the roadless Wilderness areas.

The 2016 campsite had a car camper and the Camp Host in his trailer as the only others in this huge area.

Give it time... future generations will find the area restored back to its former glory. Although, less fog, sleet and rain would be a big plus.
