September 1, 2017 We stop for fuel in Greybull and pick up some ice before heading out. We travel for a while before starting to climb, yet again, in elevation, and we come to Shell Canyon. What can I say about Shell Canyon other than WOW! Decently wide two-lane road gives way to a narrow two-lane road that slithers like a snake through this beautiful rock canyon … with no place to stop and take a picture until we burst out at the end of this short drive where there is a large dirt viewing area. I take a few photos of mountains, but that canyon. Wow.
The boys get a bit of walkabout and I feed them their evening meal before we tackle climbing the switch-backs to the top where there are plenty of places to pull over.
It’s getting late and we must find a place to park for the night at least, but a few days would be even better. Not only are we weary of driving, it’s Labor Day Weekend and I don’t want to be on the road.
Our first attempt is a campground a mile and half off the main road back down into a canyon. It’s full. On the way back to Highway I decide to check out the picnic area we passed coming in. Maybe, if no one is around we could sneak in a night here. Not a soul is around, but I catch movement out of the corner of my eye and it’s a moose! A little to the left is more movement and it’s her calf! I get some shots of them from inside the vehicle and decide we will move on and not disturb them.
We travel on to find a place to camp for the night. The day is getting old, but adventure isn’t through with us yet. To be continued …
Thank you for following 2Dogs’ adventures! Hugs, Shawna
