Exploring southern Wyoming, I'm struck by how vast and arid the landscape has begun. The rocky outcrops and mesas sit below the great 13'000 ft peaks of the Wind Mountains and Shirley Mtns. Towns are few and far between.
I explored the area around Cherokee Park and Creedmore Lakes north of Fort Collins and below the WY border. The high country shifted from arid open pasture to alpine forests of spruce and aspen. Wild flowers dotted the landscape as I cruised the sandy rutted roads for miles.
Around 4:30 I got in touch with Haris but reception was poor and I was sorta content with my camp spot. I was a bit bummed about not catching them nearby but didn't have a solid idea of time or location.
I left Boulder yesterday to scope out the front range and head up toward Fort Collins to camp with friends. The weather has been great and a few storms in the afternoons. I got chased by a Tibetan Mastiff on the Stove Prarie and watched the sun set in the Coche la Poudre River
Some funky sculptures
After some more walking in the woods and scrambling about.
In May 2014 I quit my job to ride a Honda Ruckus over 69'000 mi and counting. Wild camping most nights and cooking most of my own meals, I keep the costs low and the landscape changing.
