As I left my hosts in Moreland Idaho I knew that the trip was going to be a bit rough. There were long distances that had no water or ranches to get water at. Also once I got on highway 20 there was going to be a lot of traffic. And all of that was correct but there was also a lot of beauty and grandure in the desert and Craters of the Moon area. Here are some of the pictures.
I would like to send a huge thank you to Vickie and her family from Atomic City Idaho for bringing me water to fill my water tanks up so that my boys don’t have to walk an extra 3 miles out of route tomorrow. The kindness I have been blessed with out here on the road is just awesome.
I’ve been resting the boys again we went 110 miles in 5 days, a very beautiful Trek. I’ve got to talk to a lot of people about my Awareness Trek which is awesome. I was going to move out tomorrow but was invited to go to the Pioneer days in Blackfoot Idaho so I’ll stay one more day.
I’ve made it to just south east of Firth Idaho. It was a gorgeous drive from Etna Wy. I’ve primitive camped for the last three nights. Here are some pictures of the last three days.
Sometime you get a chance to meet and stay with great people. I’ve been blessed with a lot of great hosts so sometimes it’s with a little regret that I have to move on. Renegades neck is healed up enough so it time. Hopefully I have fixed the problem that caused it. Thank you to my host and many blessings on their house.
I’ve made Etna Wy. I had a beautiful drive thru McDougall pass. It was three days of a steady but not steep up hill climb. How ever for what ever reason Renegades collar rubbed him again and started a sore. So I’ll be staying put in Etna till it heals up. Here are some pictures of my journey.
I’ve had awe inspiring vista’s to camp and view for the last couple of days. And almost no way to update my blogs. So here is some of the views I’ve seen. I was on the Landers Cutoff for most of these pictures.
I’ll be starting just east of Indepence Rock and will be going through Devils Gate then Split Rock, Jeffery City, then South Pass.
When I left Wheatland I knew I was starting on a crazy adventure across terrain that had very few people in it. I wasn’t wrong the terrain was beautiful, I went a couple of days without seeing anyone. I met a couple of ranchers who did host me also. A big thank you to them. The experience is something I’ll always cherish even though it’s not done yet I still have miles of wild country to cross.
I’m climbing the foothills through the wilds of Wyoming. The scenery has be absolutely stunning. I would like to thank the ranchers and people who have helped me by hosting me, helping me across cattleguards that aren’t wagon friendly, and hauling my Wagon half way up the first hill so I that my boys could walk up easier. The first set of hills were about 7 miles at a 7 to 10 percent grade. Here are some pictures of my trek since Wheatland.
