When Betsy and I drove from Rocky Mountain National Park to Yellowstone National Park in September, 2012, the trip took us through parts of Colorado and Wyoming that we hadn’t visited before.  Part of the time we traveled through Wyoming’s Medicine Bow National Forest and along the Hoback River.

While we were eager to get to Yellowstone, the scenery was so pretty that we ended up stopping several times just to enjoy the view.  The Hoback River is not very deep, but the water was pretty and clear.

I’m sure we could have made the trip in less time if we hadn’t stopped to enjoy the view and get photos.  But looking at these pictures now, the extra time on the road was very well worthwhile.
