We left Boysen sooner than anticipated earlier because of an over abundance of flies. Isn’t it nice to just move one’s house when something annoys them?
We traveled only one-half as far as originally planned. While driving South on Highway 28 we encountered a sign that indicated a loop to two historic towns, Atlantic City and South Pass City, nearly ghost towns. More about them later.
The road eventually turned into gravel, but excellent gravel road similar to the gravel roads in Alaska, only these were a tad narrower than those of AK. But I digress. While in route the few miles to the cities, there was a sign for a BLM campground, one-half mile, on a side road. I made note of it and returned to it after a drive-through and tour of the two cities.
Yup, it truly is a campground so well unpublicized and annotated that it is only half full. But since the BIG Atlantic Gulch CG has only seven sites, three ‘residents’ constitute that capacity! The CG is located in a grove of small quaking aspen trees. I am watching one quake right outside my window… quake on, little tree! The appreciated breeze is a good quake inducer.
I may stay here a day or three, as I want to revisit the ‘cities’ and check for additional exploring opportunities. Also Barth could do with a general as well as a detailed house cleaning. Any volunteers to help?
I am glad I wandered into this location!Tags: Camp sites, Wyoming
