FORSHEE FAMILY PLOT

Hyattville, Big Horn County, Wyoming

N 44 15.803   W 107 32.562

This family plot is on a private ranch near Hyattville.  Ask permission to visit!  From downtown Hyattville, drive 3.5 miles northeast on the Cold Springs Road until you reach the Rea Grove Lane.  Proceed south, crossing the creek over the wooden bridge and up the hill.  Bear left and enter the gate to the ranch house.

You will need assistance to locate this spot.  The plot is .5 miles from the ranch house on a hillside overlooking Paintrock Creek.  To the east is the hovering, majestic presence of the Big Horn Mountains.  To the north are the remarkable red bluffs that mark the entrance to the State of Wyoming Archeological Site and Indian pictographs.  In the trees along the creek are wasp nests as big as basketballs, and Sharp-shinned Hawks spaced apart like sentinels.  Numerous other birds and critters are residents here.  The beauty of this spot is remarkable.  Surrounding it is the ranch and all its activities.

There is one grave at the present time.  It is marked with a nice headstone, and nearby, plants and trees have been added by family members.  It is protected by orange livestock panels, as requested by its occupant.  When you ponder how hard the work was, you appreciate such a nice resting place.
