Ranchester must be the friendliest place in Wyo. We pulled into town, and as we were parking in front of the Visitor Center, a gentleman pulled up alongside and started telling us all about Connor Battlefield park, the Bighorn mountains, and local shopping. He talked with us for quite a while, and even offered to give us a lift to the grocery store so we didn’t have to take the rig (nothing creepy – he was really nice). He went to Connor while we popped into the Visitor Center to make sure there was room for us.

The park was another excellent place to stay. The pull-through lots were nicely maintained and were a reasonable distance apart. There were only three other sites occupied, so it was nice and quiet.

At twilight, we saw five owls across the road from our site. One of them swooped down and caught some kind of rodent and took it up into a tree. One of the others fought him for it, but it was too dark to see which ended up with the prize.
