Elk Hunting Day 5

High winds (25-30 mph) and drifting snow occasioned a trip to Laramie to replenish our gas cans, milk and have brunch (Ben's treat) at the Prairie Rose (a 60's style family owned breakfast restaurant with a lunch counter and tables frequented mainly by locals). The food is good, the coffee replenished continuously, and we are served by cute and friendly college girls (Laramie is the home of the University of Wyoming).

Our handsome chauffeur.

Back from Laramie (we didn't get stuck on the drifted-in county road) Ben and I geared up for the afternoon elk hunt. Unfortunately we did get stuck in the FJ (wind low drift had crusted over) and David had to walk back to the cabin the fetch the truck and pull us out.

Determined not to get stuck again, Ben and David chained up the truck for tomorrow's hunt.

  1. What a nice day off! You’ll have to take me to that dinner sometime. Ben’s crispy hash browns looked very yummy this morning! Glad you’re set and ready for the rest of the week!
