We left Wyoming and the snow behind – what a freak summer/winter storm that was – September 11th – it got down to 24 degrees that night!
We moved on to Nebraska. Our first campground in this state is Chadron State Park and near by is Fort Robinson State Park where we spent part of the day today (13th) exploring. And wouldn’t you know it – we can’t get away from these animals – they have a private herd of Buffalo at Fort Robinson State Park.
There were a lot more than just these two.
This part of Nebraska is in the Northwest so it is very close to South Dakota and looks that state to me. Pretty plants.
This is from Fort Robinson, it was a military fort that was used from the Indian War days in the 1880’s all the way through World War II
A neat windmill
More rock scenery.
Our Campsite at Chadron – big and roomy, but it was a bit too chilly to even get our chairs out or eat outside. The cold front that was in Wyoming did move through here too the day we were traveling – all the snow melted before we got here though but it was down to 38 at night and barely in the 60’s daytime, and breezy which made it feel colder and being in the shade makes it feel even colder.
We had wild turkeys in the campground both days we were there.
Not very many campers were here, you could tell it was back to school time and getting chilly. On our stretch of the loop there are only 4 campers here and well spaced apart.
Mike on our evening walk – it was a chilly evening and I had my fleece winter jacket on which I guess for up here would be a fall jacket but is what I wear for the Arkansas winters.
We are moving on to two other Nebraska parks – getting closer to Wisconsin (our youngest daughter & family) and closer to home. We aim to be home around October 1st. Sure I’m glad we have had our older daughter and son in law taking care of the house and yard while we are gone – less to think about.
The links in the post here will lead you to the sale of the classes – all classes!! Sale continues until September 22. I went ahead and got the sock class that is “From the Toe Up” I can’t watch it until we get home as we are using our phones for our wi-fi and the videos use up too much bandwidth so I have to wait there is another sock class also that I got called “My First Socks” I was looking through the knitting classes and saw that there were 63 classes on sale – surely one of these sock classes well be easy enough to follow! I haven’t looked through the quilting classes yet but it says that there are 80 quilting classes on half price sale. I really need to get busy and look through them even if I can’t start to watch them until we get home. I was glancing through things yesterday (the 17th) and even saw some cooking classes that look good to try – I haven’t really looked through them before.
