This Oregon Trail sign is about three miles northwest of our house. It is about one hundred yards from the grave site you will see in the next couple of slides. In theory, we could jump on the trail right here and travel all the way to Klamath Falls or Ashland Oregon. Kind of crazy Huh!

This little buck decided to jump the fence with almost no effort. If you look closely to his left, standing on the edge of the brush you can see another bigger buck (the big guy was chasing the small guy). These deer hang out in an area about 6 mile from the house.

Greeting everyone! Can you believe it? On September 21st, we got our first snow of the season with the second smattering occurring on October 2nd. Julia and Tyler wanted to stay home from school to play in the snow. It didn't happen. It is hard to believe that winter is on the way. The following pictures were taken after the first snow, enjoy :-)
Looking south east toward Casper Mountain, you can see downtown Casper. This photo was taken from the BLM Trail Interpretive Center.
Bear Trap Meadow is on the top of Casper Mountain. Among the many uses of the meadow is camping, snowmobiling and summer concerts. The city holds an annual Bluegrass festival here. Typically, 2,500 people show up for that weekend event.
