Meanwhile, 90 minutes from the nearest small town and cell signal…
I wonder how many cowboys riding by on their horses imagined the kind of music that was happening in that little off-grid trailer…
My time in the Big Horns was some of the most peaceful camping I’ve ever done. But eventually it was time to move on and the Wind River Range was calling my name…
This was the only place in the Big Horn range where I could get a cell phone signal.
Too bad the views were awful.
Located on Medicine Mountain, the Medicine Wheel is one of North America’s most well preserved Native American sacred places.
It’s at least 250 years old. Even today, the site is sacred to many different tribes across the US.
Offerings tied to the rope fence or left within the wheel are from those who have made the pilgrimage to the site. Ceremonies still take place here regularly.
I was accompanied by crows during my hike out. A few even stopped and talked with me for a while.
At more than 8500 ft. elevation, it’s incredible to watch the weather roll through the mountains.
During the summer months, much of the region is open range which means cattle can pop up anywhere. (Even in your campsite at 5:30a!)
With the Jamboree trails as my introduction to this beautiful mountain range, I decided to stick around a while for some off-grid camping and exploration.
We can’t leave, so we’ll just have to settle for campfires in the yard.
I think Mr. Fletcher is probably okay with hanging out at home.
I spent an absolutely lovely week camping at Algonquin Park in southeastern Ontario. Canada is so incredibly beautiful and Algonquin is one of Ontario’s many highlights.
While I barely scratched the surface of all that there is to see and do, I did manage to take in a few scenic hikes including: Bat Lake, Lookout Trail, Big Pines Trail, Track & Tower Trail, and I enjoyed a refreshing bike ride from the Lake of Two Rivers down to Whitefish Lake.
