Today was another travel day. We drove from Glendo State Park in Wyoming 173 miles to St Vrain State Park in Longmont, CO. In Wyoming we saw this lone metal cowboy up on the hill along the interstate.

As we passed the WY border into Colorado on the interstate, we looked for the bison on the hill each year.  It’s a metal cell phone repeater cleverly camouflaged as a bison and is located on the property of Terry Bison Ranch where we have stayed several times in the past.

We stayed at the St Vrain State Park Campground in Longmont which is a beautiful campground with several lakes and nice walking trails.  Each picnic table had a shelter which kept the afternoon sun off of us.
