We found our next camp in a nice peaceful setting high up in the Bighorn Mountains of Wyoming.
The first morning I went for a hike in the woods
where a mile in it got pretty dense and I felt I had gone far enough
so I turned back.
Hmm...bears live here?
Back at camp I see this appeared while I was away!
Being they were horse people I assume they were setting up for some sort of rodeo.
Whatever the event we didn't stick around.
The highway east was a nerve-wracking 12 mile descent
and yes I was in first gear most of the time saving my brakes.
This is the view with a few miles yet to go so you can imagine how high we were at the beginning.
After that needed a nice lunch to calm down by.

Hey, it's Wyoming.
