Beaver Dam – SW Wyoming: 9/8 – 9/9/18

Another travel day was upon us as we headed south to northern Utah.   We did a lot of driving in Yellowstone, and we were getting used to not pulling 6,000 pounds behind us.  It has a different feel on the road when our condo is attached, but our Toyota Tacoma is handling it.  She also passed the 25,000 mile check up with flying colors!

Just before the Utah border, we found Alfred Flat Campground.  It was located just off the main road, down a dirt road next to a stream. There were 10 sites and you pay via the honor system.   The sign instructs you to deposit $11 cash per night into the metal box.  This campground had bathrooms and fresh water (hence the amenities that we are paying $11 for).  The sites were open but private and nicely spread apart.
