Horseshoe Bend Campground

Hello Friends, Hope all is well with you.
 
That snow on October 13, if I recall right in the 25 years that we have lived here, is the earliest we have gotten snow. It dropped 3" worth, but only lasted two days after it was done. 
Usually it doesn't snow until around Halloween.

Here is our last camping trip on Sept. 28-30, 2018

We went back down to Wyoming and stayed at the Horseshoe Bend Campground 20 miles outside of Lovell, WY. This was a first as the campground had electrical hookups, but the water was shut off at the beginning of September thru May. It was $25 a night for the electric sites and $10 a night for no hookups. They also have a dump station and water fill up, but they close those Sept. - May also.


If you open the picture you can see our white 5th wheel, It's the ONLY one in the whole campground. That's right we had the whole place to ourselves and only had two other campers (a pop-up and a motor home) stop overnight the first day. They were both gone before noon.


There were lot's of beautiful views and even though it was chilly we walked around the campground, my hubs taking campsite pictures for his camping blog and later me getting the scenery shots.


We were treated to another beautiful Wyoming sunset on our first night.


When I was out walking around the rocks and juniper bushes I found plenty of these spiny guys just waiting to stab you.
 
Look at the spines on those suckers, some were close to 2" long. 

Glad we didn't have dogs, I'm sure I would have had to pull a few from their feet.


That's it for the campground pictures, we drove around on Sunday to a couple of historic ranch sites and to the Bighorn Canyon, I'll post about them on another day since it will be another picture heavy post.


Well, it seems that the 2018 camping season has come to a close for the hubs and I here in South Central Montana. 
All the freezable items have been removed, the tanks and water heater have been drained, the water lines blown out, and RV antifreeze has been added to the vacation home. 
We still need to remove the batteries and put them in the basement, the hubs isn't looking forward to that since those 12 volt batteries are big and heavy and there are 4 of them. 

Take Care Everyone
Hugs, Sandy
