What a view! This is the Snake River, and we are camping right on it. For free! That itty bitty river up there on the L is the Polecat River, flowing into the Snake River.
This view shows the river a little better. I wish y’all could hear it! Of course I would cut down those two dead trees if I owned this spot, but they didn’t ask me.
This is a dispersed campground (free), and there are four sites in this little spot. That is the good news; the bad news is that it will be closed as of today so that the small outhouse can be replaced by a larger one. The ranger emptying trash yesterday said that we might be able to stay, seeing as how we are self contained and don’t need the outhouse, but I know for sure the three tents sharing this spot with us are gonna have to go. Poor things.
It’s beautiful and sooo peaceful. We can’t leave for Yellowstone (which is what we want to do for the day) until we find out if we have to leave or not. We want to stay here for a few days, and go canoeing. Pretty please, let us stay, ranger man!
The perils of traveling.
We’ll manage. We’re flexible.
Did I mention that life is good?
