July Trip to Cottonwood Creek

Here are pictures from our July trip. We camped from July 3-7.
 Very photo heavy.

The hub chose a different site this time thought there were less mosquitoes, there weren't. Not as much room when stepping out of the trailer, had to watch for rocks so we didn't twist an ankle. Won't park there again unless there is no other site, we could also park on one of the outcroppings down by the river.
 
  
Tried to see some of the fireworks displays on the 4th, but there was a huge storm rolling in.

Even the neighbors thought they could get a glimpse.
 
I actually caught lighting after trying a couple dozen times.
 
 
We fired up the Rhino and took a drive after the roads mostly dried out a day later. Saw some more things we hadn't seen before while camping there.
 

And the two mines they were running. You can only go into them if you have a permit and key from the BLM so they know to send help if you don't return the key by a certain time. They are also posted with signs for Radon levels. We did not go into the mines.


Thought the one with the cage looked like something out of Jurassic Park. You have to repel down into that one.

Also got some shots of Devil's Gorge and the Big Horn Canyon.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Views of the Big Horn River are everywhere. This river is only about 10-15 feet wide during the winter and spring winding through the valley, but when the snows start to melt and the spring rains start it covers the whole valley.
 

That's it for this camping trip, next will be our trip to the Big Horn Mountains.

Take Care Everyone
Hugs, Sandy
