Dirt Road Afternoon

Updated: Nov 8, 2020

After our morning visit to the Buffalo Bill Dam and Visitor Center, my family headed out of town toward home. Feeling a deep aching inside of me not to go back to an empty house, I drove out of town too.

I took the Wild Horse Highway out of Cody toward Greybull. I didn’t really know where I was going but I decided I wanted to see wild horses when I saw the turn off for McCullough Peaks.

I followed the dirt road for about an hour stopping to take pictures along the way of the incredible views! Eventually, I came to a crossroads and being in the middle of nowhere without really telling anyone where I was, I decided it was time to turn around.

I may not have found any wild horses but I found breathtaking views and a great drive just to unwind from a very busy week! I found the wildflowers still blooming, the air fresh and sweet, and one antelope enjoying the solitude of the plains!

I turned up the music loud singing along with every word. It’s moments like that, that make the cares of the world fall away!

“Not all those who wander are lost.” Then again, some of us totally are!

Don’t worry I’ve already had friends volunteer to show me where the wild horses hide next time. 😊 For now, I feel blessed to live in such a beautiful state where every corner is worth exploring!

What do you do to unwind? Have you ever gotten lost on your travels? What is your favorite song to jam to when you’re on a long drive by yourself?
