Medicine Bow

Post by dbhguru » Sat Jul 31, 2010 7:17 am

ENTS,

Monica and I will soon be home, tired but thankful for such a glorious time in the West. When I sit down at home to my computer, I will be more communicative, but here is a couple images from our stay in the Medicine Bow of Wyoming.

East Glacier Lake: elevation approximately 10,700 feet.

Bob, Wow! Beautiful photos! The trees are so lush and the sky is deep blue. Love to have a cabin on that lake. Looking forward to your adventure reports. Larry

Larry,

Monica and I just rolled in to Florence a couple of hours ago. We're pooped. The reports will take shape, but first there is a lot of information to organize. Here is a snippet. We stayed in a motel in Dubois, WY one night on our return trip. Dubois sits between the Wind River and Absoraka Mountains. Dubois is a thoroughly western town. The following image shows our motel. The small gray SUV with the black carrier on top on the left side of the parking lot is our Subaru Forester. As you can see, buildings are nestled up against a gorgeous landscape. I strolled out of the motel and took some pictures. A couple of motor cyclists were sitting and chatting. One said "gorgeous country, ain't it". I heartily agreed. No matter where we went, there would be a dozen photo opportunities.

Bob,

I have really enjoyed your western visit. It is really beautiful country. So much different than the east. I need to have more time and money to get out.

James,

In my humble opinion, the American West will match any place on Earth for scenic variety and beauty. In addition, there is plenty of space to move around in. The state of Wyoming has only 5 people per square mile. That is the lowest density in all 50. Now compare that with New Jersey. Here is an image of the remote Rattle Snake Range in central Wyoming. The historic Oregon Trail passed by it. The range is solid, exposed granite - quite a sight, and it does have a wealth of rattlesnakes. monica and I roamed around in a section on a cool day (it can get very hot on the rocks). I'll have a complete narrative in a few weeks when I can get all the information organized.
