We broke camp at Casper this morning and pulled Lucy up to Buffalo, Wyoming, the southern gateway to the Bighorn National Forest.

We made camp at the Indian Campground & RV Park right in Buffalo. It's a really nice place with five point hook-ups.

We took a ride into the National Forest this afternoon to scope out Moosing locations that SuEllyn got from a local outdoorsman that she met at the Post Office. We drove about 25 miles into the Forest. There is a lot of Moose habitat here with damp terrain with many willow bushes. It's a regular Moose salad bar. We didn't spot any Mooses this afternoon, but this area has all the earmarks of a target rich environment.

We had some more rain this evening. Rain is also predicted for the weekend. Regardless of the weather, the Moose hunt will go on.

It looks like you are in the same campsite that we had in 2008! I'm sitting here at my PC and I can see the little airstream magnet we bought in the camp gift shop.

Have fun!

Makes me homesick. I attended Johnson County HS in Buffalo sixty years ago. I have great memories of fishing, hunting, picnicking, biking, etc. all over that area. I've been back a few times, most recently for my fiftieth class reunion in 2003. A lot of "wild west" history in the region. I also lived in Casper when I was real young.

When we go through Wyoming now it is usually going through as fast as we can on I-80. Kids live in Nebraska and siblings in Colorado so those are usually our target destinations now.

You've re-ignited my interest in visiting northern Wyoming again!

We are in C-3, just a couple of spots from the office. This campground has the most extensive gift shop that we have ever seen at a campground. The owner told us that buffalo is about half way between Yellowstone and Rushmore, and accordingly he fills up every night with passers-through, and they love the gift shop.

We have been coming to Northern Wyoming each year for the past 4 years, but this is our first time at Buffalo. In the past, we have camped in Ranchester near the northern end of Bighorn National Forest. We decided to try Buffalo this year.

Buffalo is a really neat town with lots of historic houses and commercial buildings. Buffalo's downtown is vibrant with lots of business going on, unlike so many small towns that we have visited. It must have been nice growing up here, very different from growing up in downtown Miami.

Gene, having grown up here, maybe you can answer a question for me. Why are the 'Big Horn' Mountains and the 'Big Horn' Region two words, and the 'Bighorn' National Forest and 'Bighorn' Sheep are one word?

I just caught up with this thread. We share the same interest in older buildings so I always enjoy your photos.

We'll be leaving Monday for Alaska and doubt we'll cross paths as we are taking I-15 from Provo to the border after getting to Provo from western Colorado. I am sure we'll see moose in Canada and Alaska and will try to get some photos. I hope you're not getting the same wind and dust we are getting in Colorado.

Gene

We would love to see Moose pictures from Canada. Have a safe and enjoyable trip. Let us hear about it.

We set out this morning into the Bighorn National Forest. Within the first hour we spotted a young female off in a field. We continued west on US 16 through the National Forest, and went all the way over to Ten Sleep to take a look around. Ten Sleep is a cute little town with a really cool falling down barn.

On our way back eastward, we have four more Moose sightings. That's really good for our first day in a new area.

We got back to Lucy right around dark.

Brian

Great pics. Thanks for sharing.
Several years ago while traveling from Sheridan to Cody, we drove through the Pryor Mountain Wild Mustang preserve. It is east of Lovell. Don't know if guys will venture to the north end of the Big Horns but if you do, it might be worth the drive out there. We were there in the summer and the roads are dirt and gravel so don' know about the condition this time of year. The herds of wild horses were really something to see as well as a lot of other wildlife. The preserve is on BLM land and there is a lot of info on the internet about it.

The falling down barn just outside of Tensleep...I've photographed it dozens of times and have yet to get that perfect shot. It's been in that same shape for at least the last 7 years, but catching the light just right on this subject has eluded me. There is a really cool "Ice House" on Tensleep creek just beside the bridge also. I call it an ice house because the winter has been the only time I've felt it was worth photographing...and I've taken a bunch of photos there also.

As stated earlier, thanks for taking us along on your journey!

Thanks for the great photos of the scenery and the mooses too! I don't know why my spell checker says "mooses" is incorrect??
