Third Leg of Our Trip – June 23 – July 15

It’s been a while since I’ve updated our trip log.  Rest days from climbing were typically with friends/family or we went hiking.  Not many days on the internet, so I’m going to give the quick overview

Days 16 – 19

Headed to Jackson, Wyoming and hung out in the beautiful area.  Shopped, hung out in National Forests, walked around town, caught up on civilization essentially.

Met up with friends from Memphis who just happened to be visiting at the same time.  Haven’t seen them since our wedding so it was great to see them again!

Days 20 – 38

Here’s what happened in this section in a nutshell.

Climbed awesome rocks.

Where’d we climb?

  • Wild Iris outside of Lander, Wyoming
  • Ten Sleep canyon, in Wyoming.
    • This is one of our all-time favorite places to climb during the summer
  • Crazy Woman Cliffs (surprise surprise, in Wyoming)
  • Story, Wyoming – were close to Tory’s family in Sheridan so drove up one day

What else?  Time with family and friends.

Who?

  • Friend from college and Tory’s best man – Chris – visited us in Ten Sleep for a few days
    • Climbed some climbs, attended a climbing festival, put out a brush fire, climbed some more.  All in all, a great time.
  • Sister Amy
    • She got lost and took dirt roads to Ten Sleep even though there is a perfectly good highway system in the state, so she missed the Ten Sleep 4th of July Parade
    • We climbed
    • Her car basically broke while we had no cell service and we spent two hours trying to leap frog her down the canyon to town, all with her gas light being on to top it off
    • Got her a tow truck
  • Tory’s mom, sister, brother and nephews
    • Lots of great family time in Sheridan, especially at THE parade – literally the biggest parade I have been to – the Wyo Rodeo Parade.
      • Seriously crazy.  We set up lawn chairs on the street the night before in order to save our spots for the parade.  This parade is serious business
    • Saw Kayla’s new house, played mini-golf (Kayla kicked ass), attended Buffalo, Wyoming’s ‘Longmire Days’ – based off of the Netflix show
    • Went camping and hiking with Tory’s brother, sister-in-law, nephews, and mom up in Big Horn National Forest
  • College friends!
    • Great friends who we see far too little – Jeff and Emily – met up with us in Sheridan.  Food, rodeo events, catching up with friends we wished lived closer

 

On July 16 we are heading to Montana for the final part of our summer trip.  It’s ending too soon!
