We moved on from Wind Cave to Big Horn National Forrest. We stayed at my favorite place during the whole trip: Prune Creek Campground. It is located on a high spot in the mountains. The drive up was slow in the RV but worth the effort. As soon as we pulled in, we saw a deer and a fawn drinking water by the creek. With its translucent water, the active wildlife, the blooming wildflowers, and the semi-secluded location, the whole campground is a total gem.
The next day, as we were leaving, we spotted a moose drinking and eating by the creek.
We stopped at the Burgess Junction Visitor Center to learn about the forest, and the road conditions. It has a neat nature center with several interactive displays, and an amazing huge viewing area.
The drive down made me very nervous. I used my lower gear, and went very slow. I am not used to driving in mountains and to top that, the sky was showing signs of a thunderstorm.
