When many travelers think of Wyoming, they think only of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. But there's a whole lot more to see and do across the rest of Wyoming, too! We start out this episode by sharing our search for a place to camp by visiting Boulder Lake, Fremont Lake, Half Moon Lake, Soda Lake, Willow Lake and the Green River Lakes, before settling in at the High Line Trail RV Park in Boulder.

From there we explore Pinedale, its surroundings at the foot of the spectacular Wind River Mountains, and its unique importance to the discovery and exploration of the American West. We'll get a primer by visiting the Museum of the Mountain Man to learn more about the fur trade, Fort Bonneville, the Green River Rendezvous, explorers Benjamin Bonneville, Jim Beckwourth and Jim Bridger, and more, before heading out across the countryside in search of the sites that we learned about at the museum.
