Cool Stop #3: Ayers Natural Bridge, WY

Ayers Natural Bridge

Ayers Natural Bridge

I know this trip is getting good because the daily distances covered are getting shorter. Today we planned on getting to Grand Teton National Park (the chestiest of all the National Parks) but only made it as far as Dubois. Something about a rodeo tonight and camping alongside the Wind River made going on impossible. Yesterday we hoped to travel from Fort Robinson, NE to Dubois, WY. Again, we didn’t make it. Instead we pulled off the side of the road to check out Ayers Natural Bridge. As followers of this blog might know, we are suckers for natural bridges. Until yesterday my favorite was in Southern Illinois. Now it is down a paved but lonely and often too narrow road that stretches about eight miles off I25 just a tad east of Casper, WY. From what I can gather, the bridge used to be on private property but was donated to the county a while back. There is no entrance fee and no camping fee either. Just lots of swimming and fishing on the stream that runs directly under the bridge. We thought we were going to camp there but as the day wore down we decided we wanted to get a little closer to the Tetons. So instead we camped in what seemed like a parking lot (but with a nice pool and showers and wifi). This KOA has the same and we are feeling a bit spoiled. Noel

    I hope that you are having a wonderful time so far, and I hope that you don’t get any more ticks!Also, I was wondering if any fairies came into your fairy houses yet?
