      Dubois KOA

      September 9, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 59 °F

      Our site is right on the Wind River. We now know why it is named that, it is windy. A chilly wind. A really gusty wind.

      Also, Heather likes looking around the camp store when we check in to see what they have, what might be different. Today was a big score for me. The campground’s end-of-season sale had these one-off-kind bear comfy shorts 30% off! We snapped them right up. Question: do they make me look fat?Read more

      Gordon saw a wee little sign pointing to a one-track gravel road, headed straight up a hill just west of town: Scenic Outlook. Why not. We courageously headed up, hoping the car that had preceded us was a local and KNEW that the track was manageable in a car. We put the Hilander in 4-wheel drive for the first time since buying it.

      At the top we met two gentlemen outfitted with hiking poles, out for their morning constitutional following their regular coffee date. They gave us lots of tips about where we might go if only we were staying longer. The fellow in the photo reminded me in the process of the correct pronunciation of “creek”: that is, “CRICK.”

      They strongly encouraged us to take the-half mile walk out to the end of the table top for some good views. Wow. Glad we could share.

      Population 971, elevation 6946 feet, and pronounced “do-BOYS.” Though it is obvious the town’s business relies heavily on summer tourists and fall hunters, it feels genuine and lived in and we had more than the normal interactions with the residents. There were the two gentlemen hiking on the scenic trail just outside of town where we took all the photos of the painted hills.

      There was the proprietor of the local wine store who managed to fill his postage stamp sized establishment with 2 of everything, and I’m not kidding. We walked out with three regional brews for Gordon, a lovely Chianti for me, and an explanation why he is able to stock Buffalo Trace bourbon when we have such a hard time finding it in populous Jacksonville, Florida.

      There was the woman at the convenience store advertising the largest Jackalope exhibit anywhere.

      We especially enjoyed conversing with Monty who owned the jewelry store and art gallery where Gordon bought Heather a gorgeous pendant of Navaho silver with gaspeite. Monte was an artist and photographer, a businessman, a gemologist, a ragtime pianist (if it’s by Scott Joplin he plays it, and a single action pistol shooter. He regaled Gordon with stories of competitions he’d been at where they had to do instant slo-mo relays so people could see what they saw. He also gave Gordon tips on where he should go to get a nice custom- made bowler hat like his. When I snapped a picture of him and then asked permission, he said sure, it happens all day long.

      Here are some artistic closeups of plant life. And.... more proof of aliens! The fourth photo shows crop circles, or something like that. (Heather disrespectfully called them parking lot circles.) And the fifth photo shows the tabletop that we drove up to. You will notice how flat the top is, as if the top of a mountain had be removed for some purpose. This is in fact where the crop circles were. And if you look at the photos in the other posts, you will see that a lot of other mounters have have had there tops removed. I suspect that Dubois was the site of an alien space port, the structures of which were scoured away in the last ice age. Goodness... it sends shivers up my spine to think that we were so close to the alien presence here on earth.Read more
