Day 5 leaving Med Bow

Time to say goodbye to my sister and her family, and Medicine Bow.  I would have liked to spend more time exploring the back roads, but there was still too much snow to do that this time of the year.  Maybe another time.  
Helping out at the water pump.  Yummy mountain water.

Said bye to Camille's family, then drove over the top and stopped on the way down on a random road to explore (french's something?)
Witches butter!
Cute baby froggie.  There were millions of mosquito larvae in the ponds we explored.  I'm glad we weren't there after they hatched.
The hikers.
One lone morel mushroom.
Poor Ammon.  Still not back up to normal. 
This is one of the reasons I love to hike with my dad...he knows all kinds of cool things.  This is oxygen being made.

We drove to Saratoga and swam in their public pool.  This is my most favorite pool ever.  It is warm. 
It's heated by a natural hot spring.  
Leaving the forested mountains, we drove to Wamsutter, Wyoming and camped for the night on the prairie, with the intention of looking for turritella.  It was found a few feet from the car, although this wasn't where it was expected to be found, and the pieces were small.  Everyone had fun looking for pieces of the stuff.  (Turritella is a rock with fossilized shells.)
