On the morning of the 13th we headed out early to drive about 5 to 6 hours to a campground about 20 miles or so from Yellowstone. Our reservations for one of the campgrounds in the park didn’t start until the 15th so we had two nights to stay outside of the park. The drive across Wyoming was beautiful, going out of the mountains to the high desert country and then back to the mountains again. It was a tiring day though and I was ready to get to the campground. It is pretty but not as good as the previous campground.
Here is some scenery on the drive across from the middle of the state to the northwest corner.
Looking up at the mountains I could see a window in the mountain I guess you could call it – that is what I am calling it.
And here we are down in the desert area which is about 5000 feet elevation – we had camped the previous night at 7600 ft and drove up to 9600 in the morning, we are now camped once again at about 7600 feet elevation.
See that twisting road down there – that is where we are headed.
It got cloudy for awhile and that mountain peak is what we see from the campground.
All set up for the evening meal
This time brownies are in the Dutch oven – you put charcoal under it – about 6 to 8 pieces (you start the charcoal first) and about 12 – 20 pieces on top depending on what you are making.
They turned out ok, but as brownies go these were a bit too moist – but edible as you can see by the half empty pan – but they were very thin! we weren’t total pigs.
