Encampment Cowboy Gathering By Bob Kisken

ENCAMPMENT, WY-For a town of its size (450), Encampment, WY, has many different events during the year.
The 13th Annual Grand Encampment Cowboy Gathering was held July 17-19, of this year.

Besides hosting, a group of fine cowboy poets and musicians, it has a dutch oven cookoff, stick horse rodeo, and all star cowboy poetry and music show, a dance and a campfire jam session.

I’ve also put some of the scenic photos I took while driving around the Encampment area. It is a beautiful area. Go next year, fish, enjoy the scenery, the museum, go to the hot springs in Saratoga, camp out, and go to the 14th Annual Grand Encampment Cowboy Gathering.
