Leaving Rawlins area we started heading south for the winter. Just like the white pelicans you see in picture on Saratoga Lake. Sam our clown is a diver and he loves when we park near water.We drove the scenic byways in south central WY. over two long days. The first was Battle Pass Byway from Encampment toward Baggs. Along the way we spotted a BIG bear. Wildlife never poses for us so all we got were butt shots.
At the small town of Savery, pop 25, there was an amazing museum. We stopped for a geocache there and again it had taken us to a great location. The docent, Elizabeth came out and greeted us. She told us she was planning on buying a 5th wheel and start full-timing so we bent her ear.
All the buildings have been moved here and the museum housed priceless antiques. This blanket was made of wood fiber called Tapa cloth.
The highway kept climbing until we were at 10,600' and the mountain peaks were beautiful. There was even snow still in the crevices.Marie Lakethen Mirror Lake
