Buffalo, Wy to Thermopolis, Wy

To get from Buffalo to Thermopolis, we had to go over the Powder River Pass. As you can see from the sign, it is 9,666 feet high. We had to climb in 1st gear part of the way but we made it without a problem either going up or down.

Shortly after we stopped at the parking lot, a van pulled in with 7 boys in it who crossed the road and climbed to the top of the pass. Leah, Travis and I climbed the bunny hill :-)...

Nestled among the foothills of the Owl Creek Mountains and resting beside the Big Horn River lies Thermopolis, Wyoming. It is renowned for its World’s Largest Mineral Hot Spring and beautiful surroundings. The Big Horn Springs are located throughout Hot Springs County.
