Wyoming - Crazy Woman Canyon, Fort Phil Kearny

As a family, we enjoy exploring places that are a bit off the beaten path.  We have seen some amazing things and often we are the only ones there at the time.

We ventured back into the Big Horn Mountains for a drive into Crazy Woman Canyon.  With a name like that, how could we resist :)?  The road through the canyon is gravel/dirt and it follows Crazy Woman Creek.  Such a beautiful place...

We also enjoy visiting places that teach about our history.  The kids actually really enjoy this, too.  They take their time to read all of the signs and take it all in.

We drove through the Fort Phil Kearny area.  This fort was established in the 1860's to protect travelers on the Bozeman Trail.  We saw the site of the fort and some of the battle sites, Fetterman and Wagon Box.  Wow...

Fetterman Battle Memorial

After a day spent roaming around, we headed back to Buffalo for a good meal.  Following recommendations from a friend that lives in Wyoming, we went to the Winchester.  When someone from Wy tells you where to get "the best steak in the state", you listen :).  We did and it was.  A great ending to a great day!
