Good by Wyoming, hello Montana!

Wyoming will be remembered for my unique lodging, ghost towns, taxidermy, friendly hosts, wildlife, beautiful national parks, Indian reservations, and continental divide crossings. My first city in Wyoming was Saratoga where I soaked in the beautiful Hot Springs and stayed in a retro camper. Next off was Jefferson City, a ghost town that was 6000 people strong in the 70s with a big Uranium mine. Now only 50 people remain to carry-on the history of the abandoned town and buildings. The charming western town of Lander was my next stop where I stayed in a sheep wagon and my host took me paddle boarding and hiking in Sink Hole Canyon and I got to spend a few hours learning the art of taxidermy. Leaving Lander, I crossed the continental divide for the fourth time and had a long decent with a kaleidoscope of changing landscapes around every bend. After Lander, I rode through the Wind River Indian reservation and learned about Indian culture before spending two days camping at Jenny lake in Grand Teton and celebrating July 4 with a great hometown parade in Jackson Hole. I also spent two days in Yellowstone with highlights being Old Faithful, Grand Prismatic, and Yellowstone Grand Canyon where I got to see the most glorious sunrise. Montana has a tough act to follow!
