SPECTACULAR VIEWS!!
I am still on the road. Left Durango, Colorado yesterday and am in a fascinating small town called Aztec, New Mexico. The next few days I will view indian ruins and hope to absorb the history of the area.

WYOMING COYOTE EATER
Posted by Picasa

LOTS OF BUFFALO AND A FEW CAMELS





Posted by Picasa

CHEYENNE WYOMING


This is Wyoming. The least populated state with just 500,000 people.Remember LA alone has over 3 million! The Us government owns 58% and the state 6%.
More of Wyoming. Hundreds of miles of this. I pass signs periodically that say the name of a ranch and under the sign an arrow pointing into the distance with the words, " 5 miles," or "10 miles." We pass lots of elk and deer grazing in these vast grasslands where the buffalo use to roam in millions.
We are staying at the Terry bison Ranch in Cheyenne. We will take a train ride into the grasslands to see a herd of buffalo up close. Behind the camel is more wyoming scenery.

Mt. Rushmore so impressive but Crazy horse Memorial was even more so!

Can't get much closer than this. He was right alongside the car!










Devil's Tower in Wyoming another impressive place. Beautiful place.

















Crazyhorse Memorial. The picture doesn't do it justice.

COAST TO COAST WITH A CAT AND A GHOST - RV Net Photo - Serving Enthusiasts of the Open Road

COAST TO COAST WITH A CAT AND A GHOST - RV Net Photo - Serving Enthusiasts of the Open Road

this is a great RV website. Lots of info.
This was a museum of heavy equipment used in the area for strip coal mining. Gillette is the nation's capital for energy because of the coal mining. This museum was on the Cam-Plex Property , set off in a large field.
It was a nice walk in the mornings and the size of the equipment was impressive. I climbed up onto the dirt mover and enjoyed the view of the entire Cam-Plex and the sea of Rv's ..over 800 RVs.

Escapade WOW!

The Road to the Escapade!
What a week long experience: Seminars on blogging, facebook, microfiber, cleaning your motorhome, maintaining your motorhome and weighing your motorhome. And so much more.
My workshop on " Writing your memoirs" was a great hit. I met so many people and made so many friends just at the workshops. The last day of the Escapade a woman came to my booth to buy my book. When I asked her how she found out about the book, she exclaimed, " Everyone is talking about it!"
This trip is only half over. I am resting in the campground here at the Cam-Plex until Tuesday when my friend Vickie and I will head for 'Rapid City for more sightseeing...Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse Monument and The Black Hills.
There is always unexpected added bonuses when I travel. Today Vickie and I went to a Dog Agility Trial. I have never seen them live ...only on TV. Met a thirteen year old girl named Dusty with two of her Border Collies. One was a puppy still, named Edge, competing as a novice but the older dog was competeing in the Elite Competion and did well. Vickie and I are going to return a 9 am tomorrow to watch more competion. The dogs were fascinating to watch as they yip yipped through the course with energy that should be bottled and sold.
