Old Fort Fetterman road



got flat and straight for awhile,



skyscrapers in the distance.



more little splashes of fall colors,



and then it got REALLY good!

These are getting old

OK, time for a re-route.

Past some farm,



Look up! See the bird on the branch?



Fly away, be free!

Built to last



C'mon... really?



We just figured the road is good, the adjacent land is not. But who really knows?



I spied this old sign and doubled back to snap a pic. It was marking the county road. I guess we're good.



hard right turn before you get to the cliff.

Not actually a cliff



this was our cut-across to get back to our route -- we were actually running this section in reverse of what I'd planned, but it worked out that way. Tasty two-track.





wasn't very far, but it got us off the beaten track for awhile.





I love this shot:

Day 10

A few more pichers I had.














Man what a beautiful place----all the colors of the rainbow in this picture.












Our route was suppose to go this way-----I saw the sign off the main road and waited for the rest to show up and
we just went straight on the main road. I actually really appreciate signs like this----saves us a lot of trouble.

Long, lonely roads



So it's getting to time where we need to start thinking about camping.



Oh wait. No Camping. grrr.

the riding has been like this for miles:



luckily, the town of Medicine Bow is coming up. We roll into town, and pick up some ingredients from a really sparsely stocked general store,



and replenish our fire-water stock.



The Big Dog gets permission to camp in the town park again. So we bypass the fancy hotel in town, "The Virginian"



Which has some history to it. Cowboy.

We passed by this neat outdoor sculpture garden -- giant insects made of junk.



See the dragonfly?



there's lots to do in Medicine Bow.

We don't see any

sprinklers. And there's even a bathroom we can use.



Appetizers and cocktails,



and then we cook a decidedly glorp-like meal of elbow macaroni



and ragu doctored up with jarred mushrooms and beef snack stix.





It tasted WAY better than it looked.

After supper

we sat around by the campfire substitute™,



yakked, drank,



joked, and generally had a fine time



'till it started to get chilly. Then we had our hot chocolate and dessert,







enjoyed another red sunset through the haze,



and hit the hay. Another fun day in:
