Saturday (102 miles)
We left Cincinnati early on Friday morning stopping in Kearney NE at The Circle "S" Motel for the night (KMZ).  We picked up Saturday morning after about 6 hours in the sack and arrived at our destination, Lander WY, around 3:00 in the afternoon.  The trip in on Saturday was marked by a lot of construction but also some decent scenery.  We stopped at Split Rock (KMZ) where the Oregon Trial crosses US 287 north of Rawlins.  This was a beacon for the pioneers crossing the vast open spaces of Central Wyoming and is known as the Sweetwater Trail.  It is on the banks of the Sweetwater River and a resting spot along the trail.  Once in Lander we unloaded around 3:00 (KMZ) in the afternoon and readied ourselves for some local roads.  We went north of town to Baldwin Creek Road and went up into the mountains.  We did a little off road riding on some gravel roads in Indian Territory and got a feel for the local roads.  Quite honestly we got a little lost but found our way back down the mountain.  The road was quite bumpy and our bikes were not suited for this type of riding.  We wound our way back down to Sinks Canyon Road where we stopped near Sinks Canyon (KMZ) and found a spot on Popo Agie River where some locals were swimming.  We didn’t join them but the spot looked nice enough to jump in.  Back into town we stopped at the local bar and eatery, Lander Bar (KMZ), for some liquid refreshment and food.
