LOCATION: Alpine, Wyoming, about 50 miles south of Jackson
CAMPGROUND: Wapiti Village RV Park. Like most commercial parks – full hook-ups, nice bathroom with showers, laundry, and wifi. Unlike most RV parks, it kindly provides campfire rings and picnic tables. Some trees. $50/night. Seems like a lot but is a bargain around here. The KOA in Jackson is about $130/night. 4 stars out of 5.
WEATHER: Same as last few days – cold in AM warming to 90 in the afternoon
DRIVE: 1/2 hour
We slept really well at the Harvest Host farm. Our Joy is very happy here.
We took a walk around the pasture for some exercise, then headed north, only about 20 miles to Alpine. We will spend the 2 next two nights at a commercial park. It is time to do laundry, get our battery charged up, and prepare for the next string of dry-camping nights.
Consequently, I spent most of the afternoon doing laundry while George did some tinkering on the Airstream.
Then, happy hour! We haven’t visited a brewery for awhile, so it was a treat to visit the one here in Alpine.
It was really hopping. All the Wyoming restaurants seem to offer only outdoor dining, so the patio was full. There were a lot of young people – I think they were quenching their thirst after a day rafting.
As an added treat, a guitarist sang.
Back at the campground, George got a fire going. We cooked dinner in an iron skillet right on the fire, as there was no grate.
DINNER: Bay scallops sauteed in butter and garlic, with mushrooms. Side was a Greek orzo salad with some of the fantastic sourdough bread we bought yesterday at the Harvest Host farm.
BOOK: “Next Year in Havana” by Chanel Cleeton. It is #1 of a trilogy of books about Cuba that an online travel-lovers book club recommended. 4 stars out of 5
Then, a special treat. We get one TV channel here, and it is PBS. How lucky! We watched two old BBC comedies, then the Canadian show “Red Green” What a fun way to end the day!
