Snow fence everywhere. We were told by a Walmart clerk that winter in Laramie is from September through June. Many times they have had a blizzard in June.

Impressive pictures
Your blogs are most interesting and we look forward to them every day. I can't imagine snow in late June. Lloyd's brother Travis and his Martha are visiting for a few days from the Chattanooga area. She and I won the games of pinochle we played last night. Yea women! Taking 3 capsules of fish oil/day has brought Lloyd back to normal. PTL! I hope he'll be strong enough to go to church with me Sunday. Storms at night in a campground are no fun. Your storm sounded like ours on Tues complete with hail.

Wow!
Justin, looks like now you are getting into the real beauty!! I love hearing about everything you are getting to see. That's nice that you will be in your current spot for 2 days so you can really explore and take a break from the traveling. Enjoy and have fun!! Aunt Tara
