Camping at Curt Gowdy State Park, Wyoming

campingMike went on a camping trip this past week, and I didn’t. Sad to say, I’ve lost most of my interest in camping. I guess it’s mostly the going to the bathroom outside. Just not my style anymore. I still like getting out and hiking, but camping has lost most of its charm for me at the ripe old age of 61.

love-not-campingAn old friend of Mike’s invited him up to Wyoming for a few days of mostly male bonding I suspect, who knows. Oh yeah, he does! I stayed home and was reminded of how I spent most of my adult life living alone and enjoying it. There are so many positive aspects to living alone. I love to wake up and just see how my day progresses in a natural way, with no outside influences.


Mike drove up to southern Wyoming to camp with old friends at Curt Gowdy State Park. He took some nice shots of the area to share with you.
