RVSue and her canine crew camp at Horseshoe Bend Campground in the Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area near Lovell, Wyoming for eight days, September 5-12.

More play station fun!
Off they go!
A reader asks “Who’s the fastest, Reggie or Roger?”
Reggie is the fastest! That little boy can MOVE!
Know why Reggie isn’t in the next photo?
Because he’s already zoomed past the camera and is behind me!
Whereas Reggie is a sprinter, I think Roger probably is more a long-distance runner.
Meanwhile. . .
The hills beyond the day use and boat dock area turn pink at sunset. The pink is reflected in the water.
The pattern of our days . . .
When Reg and Rog have had their fun at the play station, we return to the Perfect Tow Vehicle.
After a few visits, I don’t have to hook them onto tether or leash. They walk with me, worn out and happy, to the passenger side door. I give them a drink (although Roger usually has had his fill out of the bay) and then I pop them into the PTV.
Except one time Roger refuses to leave.
He’s like a little kid! Okay, Rog, if that’s the way you wanna’ play it . . . .
“Good bye, Roger!”
I drive away. Reggie and I roll down the dirt road in the PTV until we go over a crest and are out of Roger’s sight. Then we sit and wait.
Here he comes, the little devil . . . . Ha! I’ve never seen him run so fast!
Roger doesn’t pull that stunt again.
We take the road to higher ground for internet signal.
I have my laptop and Verizon air card hooked up to the inverter that is plugged into the cigarette lighter thingy.
At the entrance to Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area, I park the PTV in the pull-out.
This is where I blog for a couple hours, mostly in the morning.
If the morning becomes too hot and uncomfortable, we leave the blog-writing spot and return to air conditioning in the Best Little Trailer. The crew naps and I read my Paperwhite . . . or I nap, too!
Then, after or before another visit to the play station at sunset, we return so I can check the blog comments, read emails and news, and/or finish the post I began in the morning.
Because of this routine, the crew and I don’t do much exploring of Bighorn Canyon. We don’t see any wild horses, just their tracks. Good grazing in September is further from the road and lures them out of view.
This next photo was taken the day the forest fire smoke moved in.
We do walk the Mouth of the Canyon Trail (1.75 miles) that leads away from Horseshoe Bend Campground. We wait for the coolness that comes late in the day. That’s why there’s a shadow across part of the next photo.
“Time for you two hikers to go to bed!”
That’s all for now, folks!
This post could use some serious editing but I have to go offline.
