There are a few side roads which lead off of Badwater Road but are not named. What follows are six shots from one of those dead-end roads.
For the sake of perspective, I asked my wife to be a part of this photograph. It is a wall of columns, and this shot shows all of them.
Badwater Road continues southeast to Lysite at the junction above. The Lysite, Lost Cabin area has many of these natural gas drilling sites as seen below. Because of this, there are a few warning signs along the way.
Pronghorns gallop away as soon as they see you, but this loner came trotting by us and passed within about 20 feet. It was so unusual that we weren't prepared to take any better shots than the one below.
Then we turned onto Dry Bridger Road, or Hot Springs County Road Five which leads back to Thermopolis. The other roads we were on had been graded recently, but not so with this one.
About a half mile past this cabin we encountered too much mud because of the melting snow, and so we turned around and decided to have our picnic lunch below. By the way, I didn't understand the nature of mud until I came to Wyoming.
