On the way to our next campsite, Oscar stopped to speak with an old time cowboy and his horse about our adventures and to get some insight into the local wildlife. The horse warned his new little buddy about grizzly bears and a marauding giant buffalo seen wandering about these parts. The cowboy told Oscar about the wild Wyoming Jackalopes that are "just about this high." Oscar looked his new bronco buddy in the eye, spit out a chew of tobacco and said "I ain't askeered."
The 5 mile gravel road to Pinnacle Campground had plenty of nice scenery
After looking at the sites, we chose #6, for its view of the lake and mountains across the way
Oscar liked watching the sunrise out of the Wonder Egg, but his most enjoyable moments came as he enjoyed his daily "Coffee With a View"
The morning stillness displays a mirror image of The Pinnacles across Brooks Lake. Looking from the other side towards our campsite, you can make out the small, bright white dot of the Wonder Egg with spectacular mountains for a backdrop.
Oscar never saw any grizzly bears, but he did see some jackalopes . . . here's a sculptured one used for photo ops by traveling dogs.
Here's "Jack" the live jackalope Oscar used to go buffalo hunting . Oscar saved the town from the marauding giant buffalo by roping it, bringing it down, skinning it, and donating the meat to a local food shelter. Oscar then donated the skull to the town and posed with it as a warning to any other giant marauding buffallo. Everyone yelled "All hail, Oscar the Wonder Dog!"
What am I gonna do with the insufferable little dog now?
