My son is in Wyoming and camps here all the time, so I decided to make it up here. Great country. I camped in a playa seca about a mile northeast of Boar's Tusk. Great spot, I didn't have to drive in the brush and risk setting a fire and there was already a fire ring there. This is probably the most desolate forlorn place I've camped in; no traffic, no birds, no coyotes in the night, it was great. My son said it's the only place he ever camped where he actually felt lonely. May not sound like everybody's idea of a great place, but the son did come over from Wamsutter, drove straight to me, and delivered a pizza. Can't beat that.

That Boars Tusk is an interesting place. An old volcanic neck. Chris and I visited there a few years ago, but didn't camp. Cool pic!

9,320 square miles of open land, no fences. My son said, 'It's like camping on Mars. Nobody can understand how empty it is unless they've been there.' And my best accomplishment as a dad was taking my son out hunting, fishing, camping and instilling in him a love and understanding of the outdoors before he could even walk. Maybe got one thing right anyway.
