One More Sleep....

Less than 24 hours to go now!!

The place I need to be in Lovell on Monday to go on my mustang tour is 2.1km from the motel! It is overwhelming to think that in 3 short days, I may be laying eyes on one of the most iconic wild horses to ever walk the earth. Fingers crossed and double crossed that I can be so lucky to see him.

The weather where I am going looks to be good. A far cry from the snow I encountered last year when I went 2 weeks earlier. Mid 20's to mid 30's seems o be what I am looking at. Maybe I can even out my tan lines from last weekend!

I have been scoping out places to see and eat at in Deadwood, The Mount Moriah cemetery is a short walk from the hotel I am staying at - and on my list of things to see. It is where Wild Bill and Calamity Jane are buried. I need to see that. The eating establishments look pretty fantastic as well. I think I am going to eat a lot of steak... Haha!

Stay tuned.... photos to come!

8 Sleeps!!

So close now!!! It has barely even sunk in that I am going on this HUGE awesome trip! I will be rolling into Cody 2 weeks from now... Cody is my happy place and I need to be there to recharge!! I am burning out and need to go clear my brain.

I am so thankful that I get to do things like this. Life is amazing and I want to enjoy it while I can. I was almost thinking about going to Texas for 5 days for my birthday too! We will see though....

Anyways - here are a few more photos from the Farmer's Day rodeo in Stony Plain! I am STILL working my way through them and will be for a long time I imagine!! :)

I caved in and booked hotels/motels. I also booked a tour in the Pryor Mountains( with the hopes of spotting Cloud!!

So I am spending the night of June 28th & 29th in Lovell.

Then to Deadwood I go for 3 nights at Deadwood Dicks (, right off of main street. I have a goal of having a drink in every notable saloon in the area. I am also planning to take a drive to Rushmore. I cannot be that close and NOT go see it.

Then, off to Cody on July 3rd for 3 nights, where I will bee staying at A Wyoming Inn ( I have my stampede tickets paid for for the 3rd & 4th and I am hoping to catch thee night rodeo on the 5th.

I am only winging it on the nights of June 27th and July 7th. I am hoping to take a wander through Yellowstone as I make my way back home.

Anyways - here are a few photos from the last week! Enjoy!
