After we saw some branding at the ranch, we said our goodbyes and headed off to go camping.
We headed to Bighorn National Forest and stayed at the Sitting Bull campsite in the park. Bighorn is beautiful, and at least before Memorial Day is very quiet. You have your choice of wooded, meadow, lake, stream, or mountainous areas inside the park. The scenic drives are nice, but if you get a chance take the time to stay overnight and get into the park off of the byways. There is great wildlife viewing, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, and boating among other things. We are headed back in the next few weeks to spend more than a night, hike around, and explore more than a quick stopover allows.
After Bighorn we headed west to the Grand Tetons, which I will post about in #3, but along the way we grabbed some fun pictures and stopped to check out some touristy hot springs in Thermopolis, WY.
