We left home on July 5th, and drove straight through to Sidney, NE. Then we stayed overnight in a hotel, so that we could strike out in enough time to find a campsite with plenty of daylight left. We camped at the Rob Roy Campground in Medicine Bow National Forest in Wyoming. The next morning, we went exploring, to take in the sights and to find some cleanish water. The campground's running water wasn't working, but we had an ultraviolet water purifier, and means to boil water.

Then we heard a few rumbles of thunder, and felt a few raindrops. But what drove us to the jeep was the sensation of something more substantial ...
We decided to take Dinwiddie Road back towards our campsite, and were glad we did, as we saw the roaming residents of the plain.
