Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT)

Thermopolis, for a small town, has remarkably nice public facilities. I am told that this is the result of state money earned from oil, coal, etc. The Thermop WYDOT is located on the south side of town, between US-20 and the Bighorn River. For a satellite image of the photographs below, click here.

On the south side of the parking lot is this sign:
The arrow points to a sidewalk that leads to a river frontage area which seems to be rarely used because it is in its natural, wild state. I suppose people come here to fish, but it is also a nice place to bring your camping chairs and contemplate the beauty of God's creation. I took these shots on the 5th of August, 2009.

For more photographs of public access points to Bighorn River, see Bighorn River public access, part 3, part 2, part 1, and Wedding of the Waters.
