The two RV Gypsies

Buffalo is a city in Johnson County, Wyoming, United States. In recent years, the town has boomed economically due to methane production from the coal bed methane extraction method used in the Powder River Basin and surrounding areas. Even though energy is a vital part of its economy, agriculture and tourism are two other major components. Buffalo is located at the foot of the Bighorn Mountains, so recreation is a short distance away. Many generational ranchers still run cattle and sheep over the highly productive terrain.

The two RV Gypsies stopped at the Northeast Wyoming Visitor Welcome Center, I-90 exit 199 in Beulah, Wyoming. What a great way to introduce someone to this state.  More states should build such informative visitor centers.  This center describes the geological history of the region, the native Indian history and migration, the flora and fauna, and the various natural and touristy sites to see.  Great visitor center, lots of photographic displays. The outside of the building some interesting things to look at too, not to mention great scenery of the black spruce hills and the almost empty highway.

As the two RV Gypsies travelled along, they noticed the snow on top of the mountains in the distance.
