Memorial Day Weekend

Not much to report. I spent Friday night on Beaver Rim:

Beaver Rim campspot.

It was a beautiful night. Naturally, I was alone because the Fifth Wheel Tribe can’t get their rigs in.

I used my little Yaesu FT-60R to call a friend in Riverton (26 miles SW of Beaver Rim) and was able to get him through the GMRS repeater, and via simplex, although he was unable to contact me via simplex.

Saturday morning I had breakfast with some friends, attended the Memorial Day Weekend gun show put on by the Wyoming Weapons Collectors, and headed towards Worland, and to the Blue Bank Road. I drove south, took a side trip to Castle Gardens (the one close to Tensleep), took another side trip to Cedar Ridge to scout out a campsite (fail), and turned off on the Nowater Trail.


Took Mud Creek Road to Black Mountain Road


and drove to (nearly) the top of Black Mountain.

Black Mountain is just a bit over 6,00 feet in elevation, but what a view!

It looks like you can see a hundred miles in any direction. I apologize for not taking photos, but I was hoping not to get harassed by an oilfield worker, and left in a rush.

I drove home via Lysite road and Waltman, arriving in Casper pretty late.
