My Wyoming Trip

My trip to Wyoming was great fun but it feels good to be home, too. I left last Sunday afternoon and drove to Powell, WY to the home of my dear friend Jane and her husband Rich. When I moved to Powell in 1992, Jane and Rich became some of the best friends I have ever had, taking me under their wing when my ex-husband decided he was more Texan than he thought and headed back to Houston. Jane is a registered nurse and I taught her to be an operating room nurse and Rich is a medical technologist who now manages the lab at the Powell hospital where we all worked. We had an enjoyable evening visiting and on Monday morning I headed south towards Encampment.

Having heard praise for the quilt store in Greybull, WY, it was a must that I stop there. It was everything LoraLee said it would be. Beautiful fabrics, rooms full of fabric and patterns, kits and ideas. I left there a little lighter in the pocketbook!!

It was a beautiful drive on to Encampment and I arrived about 4:30pm and Mom was very glad to see me. We spent some time visiting physicians to try and get her blood pressure under control and we spent the rest of my visit sightseeing. The A Bar A guest ranch where she is working is an incredibly beautiful place and I will post more about the ranch along with photos in the days to come.

Yesterday, after a really early start and fighting a headwind all day that sucked that expensive gas right out of the tank, I got close to Big Timber and called Michael. He was headed into town with Jazzy dog who was not feeling well at all. She has a very upset tummy and our vet drew some blood and gave her medication to settle her tummy and some antibiotics. She and I spent the night up and down getting very little sleep but she is much better this afternoon.

I spent the day today doing laundry and cleaning the messes Michael and Jazz made while I was gone. We are having some exceptionally cool weather for the middle of August, it has not even been 70 degrees in the daytime for the last three days.

This is Heart Mountain located between Cody and Powell, WY. There was a Japanese relocation camp here during WWII and some of the buildings are still standing.
