THIS is what I try NOT to do with when towing my trailer. Who would have thought – at about 6000 ft. elevation in Wyoming I’d see ACCUMULATING SNOW – ON THE ROADWAY at 11AM on MAY 20th?!
Watch the video below…
So, this happened near Muddy Gap, on the way towards Riverton from Rawlins and Saratoga. I left Saratoga this morning after a soak in their hotsprings (great place – and I’ll share more soon), the weather was sunny and chilly (upper 30’s), BUT there is a WINTER STORM WARNING up for tonight, so, I knew that TODAY would be the better day to travel (5.20.19) as tomorrow may see up to 2 FEET of snow (above 8000 ft) – but as you can see from my drive, the roads at 6000 ft (a common elevation here in Wyoming) CAN get covered – even in the MIDDLE OF THE DAY!
Thanks for watching – yes, I was pulling my trailer through this! Yes, I did make it safely to my destination – a campground in Boysen State Park. Right now, I’m at 4800 ft. elevation, no snow here (for now), but its just 39F at 3pm, overcast, breezy, and Memorial Day weekend starts in a few short days! More soon on it and on my latest journeys – Springtime in Wyoming!
Oh, and while you’re here – feel free to check out my latest posts on a number of RV related topics!

And we are still in S Colorado, headed to N WY. Hunkered down at a gorgeous FS campground — McPhee Rec Area. No matter the way N from here, we will cross mountain passes .. like you Alan, not fun with moho & dinghy either!
We are staying an extra 3 days just in case!
Yep, things should clear off in a few days. Here they’re expecting sun and 60 by Friday – hopefully winter’s over for real this time. Oh, and it snowed AGAIN today! Riverton – 4800 ft. elevation -had 1-2″ of wet slop accumulate on the grass and cars – the snow started at about 7am and let up/changed to rain by noon when it was just above freezing! I’m gonna be in Boysen State Park for a week or so – look me up if you pass this way.
Ah, springtime in Wyoming! All four seasons every other day.
yep, and now on the 21st, SNOWING AGAIN – this time in Riverton at 4800 ft! (and sticking to the grass!!) – 12 Noon 33F, hmmm… early snowpack for next winter??
