Road trip to Brown's Park

The other day, Pat and Seamus were at Powder Flat, checking on the lambing. They had plenty of daylight left, so decided to take a Road Trip to Brown's Park, some 60 or so miles west. Brown's Park is famous for being part of the Outlaw Trail. It lies at the crux of Wyoming, Colorado and Utah, which proved handy for outlaws looking for a handy border to cross. It is famous for its mild winters and its isolation, even today. They had the good fortune to run into several of our friends and neighbors who live in that magnificent country.
