We have arrived at our “summer home” area and are looking forward to our position as volunteer hosts at Warren Bridge Campground near Daniel, Wyoming thru the end of September. We will not “officially” start our duties at the campground for another week or so and, in the meantime, we are enjoying this time to become familiar with the area and do some exploring.
En route north, after leaving Panguitch, UT, we were fortunate to enjoy several peaceful days at a remote boondocking area south of Provo, UT… gorgeous scenery, Meadowlarks in abundance to serenade us, sounds of wild turkeys to wake us each morning, great hikes and time just sitting in the sun in this quiet mountain location. We were truly “happy campers!”
From our mountain paradise, we continued north to Provo and spent a few days parked at the Elk’s Lodge with full hookups… did our final stocking-up shopping, cooking and cleaning. Then moved on to Kemmerer, Wyoming and enjoyed visiting Fossil Butte National Monument, and on to our Daniel/Pinedale location.
After three days in an rv park at Daniel Junction, we have moved to the BLM wareyard, where we will enjoy a convenient place to be until the remaining campground snow melts and the utilities are hooked up. There is no snow here in Pinedale, 20 miles away and at a slightly lower elevation. We are very close to downtown, have full hookups, and are quite content for now.
FYI… Pinedale, Wyoming – County Seat, Sublette County. Population 2,600; elevation 7,175 feet. Pinedale is famous for its Museum of the Mountain Man, and the Green River Rendezvous Days held the 2nd weekend in July. This year is the 79th annual rendezvous.
While becoming acquainted with the area, we got our library cards, made vet appointments for our dog and cat to get annual vacs, found a hair dresser, and are visiting stores and businesses… there is the most amazing aquatic center here! For a small town, Pinedale is a very nice community with many amenities! We look forward to visiting the Museum soon :)
Before moving to the campground, we will do a bit of volunteer work (mostly Tom), putting up some fire extinguishers, repairing a wall in a building, and maybe help with some fences. We are up for anything… we really like this area and have received a warm welcome! Campground photos in the next post :)
Best regards to each of you, whatever your situation might be! We hear and read of weather problems in various parts of the country. Many of our friends are traveling… stay safe and be well!
Fondly, Dianne & Tom
