Last year we camped at a USDA site on the left, about 10 miles north of Pinedale, it was right on the Green river(?). Then we went up to New Fork Lakes and dry camped for 2 or 3. No moose sightings but a beautiful location to spend some time

Brian,

Thanks for all the great pictures, and welcome to my neck of the West. Just returned from Jackson (without AS) and a good time whitewater rafting on the Snake below Hoback Jct. and a hike in Grand Teton NP (Phelps Lake via Death Canyon trailhead) - both recommended. Hope you have a great time in that extraordinary area.

Great to see you visit the heart of the real west in places like Rifle, Rock Springs, and Pinedale. Lots of good hard-working folks in these rural communities. Never saw so many cowboy hats in one place as a couple of weeks ago at the NHSRA finals held in Rock Springs. Glad to see others appreciate these great places.

Safe travels, and enjoy!

Ron

Moosetag,

Don't know where you are currently but it sounds like you're heading toward Jackson and Hoback Junction. If you need to unwind for a day or two I would recommend "Granite Hot Springs just North of Bondurant Wyo. It has some great National Forest camp spots (Water but no electrical hookups). The Hot springs is close by and well worth the visit. The Falls there is where they filmed the kids in the movie "The River Runs Through it" running there boat over the Falls. I was up there a couple of years ago in my 28 footer and had no problem finding a camping spot that would fit. Oh, there are plenty of Moose's up there also.

Good luck,

Hank

Lucy is still camped near Pinedale, Wyoming. We spent the day checking out leads on Moose locations. We went to several different areas near Pinedale that had ideal Moose habitat. Even though we had no luck in the Moose department, we got to see some gorgeous Wyoming countryside. We did come across a herd of Buffalo.

Weather closed in on us this evening with rain and strong winds. We made our way back to Lucy to hunker in for the night.

Today's pictures include:

- Moose outside restaurant in Pinedale.
- Fremont Lake.
- Half Moon Lake.
- Lucy at her campsite.
- stock/wildlife overpass on US 191 north of Daniel Junction.
- SuEllyn in Moose habitat.
- UPS & FedEx boxes along highway in the middle of nowhere.
- Buffalo herd.
- Buffalo mom and her little guy.
- Weather closing in over the mountains.

Moose Sightings

Brian,
Have you ever gone to the Boundary Waters area in Northern Minnesota.
Talk about Moose sightings.
My son and I canoed there for 8 days. Encounter Moose during portages and actually had them swimming in front of our 17 ft canoe. We paddled as fast as we could and the modern and baby swam away like we were standing still.
Sound like you're having a great trip. Thanks for sharing events and pics with all.
Fred

Once again today we set out in search of the ever elusive Moose. We headed out into the Bridger National Forest from Cora, Wyoming. Once in the Forest we followed the Green River all the way out to Green Lake. The entire trip was through Moose habitat, but nary a Moose to found.

The twenty mile trip out to Green Lake was along a very poor road, but the scenery along the way and at the lake made the rough trip worth it.

We ended the day at the American Legion Park in Pinedale which is right on a willow bog. Mooses are regularly seen here, but not by us today.

We got back to Lucy as darkness fell, and got settled in for the night.

Today's pictures include:

- 1940 Ford Coupe in Field with 1963 Wyoming tag.
- Mail boxes along highway, no two alike.
- Bambi dispersed camped along the Green River.
- Green Lake
- Lunch stop on Green Lake.
- Operational chuck wagon in Cora, Wyoming.
- Trappers Point, where the 1830's trappers met traders from the east.
- SuEllyn posing on Trappers point.
- Livestock overpass from Trappers Point.
- Downtown Pinedale, Wyoming.

You can see the closest thing to it at the Green River Mountain Man Rendezvous in July or the Fort Bridger Mountain Man Rendezvous over Labor Day. Definitely worth seeing as 100's of vendors and true trapper/traders get together in period garb to sell their wares.

Hi Fred,

We were up there last summer. We spent two weeks doing the Minnesota Boundary Waters. We did all the way from Grand Portage over to Warroad. We had a great time and the scenery was beautiful, but alas, no Mooses to be found.

Hi Ron,

We just love coming out here and seeing the sights. Part of the enjoyment is that it is so different from home, and that's what Airstreaming is all about.

Brian, we are west of you about 1 1/2 states. Weather has been hot (80's) and dry with few clouds, so it should get to you tomorrow. We'd like it to rain overnight and wash off the dust. No mooses along I-84 or the Oregon desert either, but we did see cows, bulls and a few horses and dogs.

Gene

Lucy broke camp this morning in Pindale, and traveled a short distance up to Bondurant, Wyoming. We got Lucy a really nice campsite in a small campground and got her set-up.

We headed out from there to explore the road that follows Granite Creek out to Granite Falls. The trip was about ten miles out a washboard dirt road. At the end was the falls and the Granite Hot Springs Pool. The pool is naturally 93 degrees in the summer and 112 degrees in the winter. The pool has been here since 1933.

We left the Granite Creek area and drove up to Jackson, Wyoming. We checked out a couple of campgrounds there, and stopped by Albertson's for some supplies.

We got back to Lucy in Bondurant at about 9:30, and got settled in for the night.

Today's pictures include:

- Lucy at her new campsite.
- AS boondocking along Granite Creek.
- Granite Falls.
- Granite Hot Springs sign.
- Hot Springs pool.
- Tetons with the weather closing in.
- Buffalo holding up traffic.
- Buffalo herd.
- Large bull
- Bambi at campground with "Bambi" statue.
