Wyoming Welcome

We made Wyoming!

Greetings from area code 307, aka Wyoming. The state has so few people (less than 600k), it only needs one area code. This week, the state of “Equal Rights” made room for one traveling man and 2 mules.

Our route from the past 2 weeks. (Google maps)

Mules Cracker and Brick and I are taking a few days off in Douglas to catch our breathes. In the past two weeks, they’ve walked 225 miles from Hyannis, Nebraska to Douglas, Wyoming. That’s a lot of hoof steps and wind mill water.

Plenty of great photos, faces and stories to share with you. But first, some grub and drink for man and mules. Okay, here’s a sneak peek at the land we’re in now.

Welcome to empty: this is Niobrara County, the least populated county in the least populated state in the United States.
One of the 10 or so cattle guards the mule and I navigated yesterday. The mules can’t walk over the cattle guard. I lead them through the gate next to each gate.
Finding water between is becoming a challenge. Here, Brick ready to plunge in for a drink of windmill-drawn stock tank water.
Outside Douglas, Wyoming.
