Happy 4th of July

 HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!

We're spending it outside of Lovell Wyoming camping and rockhounding by the river. It's hot, but better than sitting at home.


Take care & stay safe

I'm Still Here

 Just a note to let everyone know that I am still alive and well. 

I have very little to no stitching or needlework designing mojo going on, it has been this way for over a year. 

My laptop has been down for several months, Windows 10 did one of it's auto updates and then it wouldn't boot back up. Tried a few quick fixes that didn't work, now just waiting to get it into a shop to see if someone else can fix it. Don't know when that will be.

I had to start using the Hubs computer, which doesn't have all the stuff that was on mine, then it got worse. Updated his from Windows XP to Windows 10 and we lost all of our newer bookmarks and photo files. What a mess. 

No camping so far this year. The trucking company he works for was sold and with all the new changes and people quitting it has been a nightmare. He has had no time off unless it's been a paid holiday or the weekend.

We went rock hounding in Wyoming but it was so windy with blowing sand (I felt like I was in a sandblaster) and hot I forgot to take any pictures.

So if you want to see a bit of what we've been up to lately, stop by his YouTube and check out the new videos he's posted. Link's in the sidebar. 

 Until next time.....

Take Care and Stay Safe

Hugs, Sandy

Trip #2 Big Horn Mountains

 I totally lost track of posting again, sorry about that.

Here are a few pic's from our August trip to the Big Horn Mountains...

Our campsite was amazing this time...

No cow's at this spot, just a small river, hiking trails and native wildlife.

Several deer showed up in the evening.

We had a few Grey Mountain Jay come calling through out the day.

And there were loads of squirrels chattering away and using the fence like their own private highway system. They had many stash areas for their pine cones through out the forest. One even decided to dig a hole in our outside carpet to try and hide a cone.

One evening this big guy showed up walking through our camp and down to the river for a wade and a snack.

There were trails to wander that either went up onto the hill or down along the the river. I never tired of walking them.

This went up the hill, not a lot to see up there just granite boulders and pine trees as we went farther there were hundreds of downed trees, some from the timber mill that used to be there and others from winter storms.

This trail led down along the river with views of the water as well as the granite formations that are all over the mountains.


This is what amounts to a beach up in the mountains, it's only about 5 feet wide.
 
Managed to get a picture of one of the trout we always saw jumping after bugs.


Several living trees that were reshaped by the snow during the winter.



Loved all the granite boulder formations, some even formed small caves but they didn't go back very far.

Saw several pines with burl's, but this one was by far the worst of them.
 
There was once a saw mill here and you can still find the garbage dumps as you walk the trails and some of the wood bits they used to move the logs.


We went for a ride in the Rhino one morning and it was quite chilly. This picture had my hubs laughing his butt off at me.
Yep, that's me all bundled up and tryin' to keep warm as we zip down the dirt roads. 

There were lots of places to boondock camp along this area, but there are always hundreds of places to boondock in the Big Horn Mountains and even several campgrounds. But if you need full hookups for camping you might be able to find that at Burgess Junction which is also one of the few places you can get WiFi.

On our way out we had to stop and empty the black and grey water tanks as all self contained camper have to. As we were leaving the dump station someone had left this amazing painted rock by the gate. We left it there for others to enjoy.
 
Hope you all enjoyed our second trip to the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming. We spent 8 wonderful days in August enjoying the cooler temps and being out in nature. Unfortunately, now I set at home with snow on the ground, lows in the teens and highs in the thirties, not to mention a head cold that came out of nowhere. Lots of rest and OJ for me.

Take Care Everyone
& Have a Merry Christmas
 
Hugs, Sandy
