SMOKY ROY PLOT

Hot Springs County, Wyoming

N 43 39.147   W 108 11.469

 

Hot Springs State Park is a beautiful place.  Buffalo roam around for visitors to see.  Mountain Bluebirds decorate the fence posts.  After a rain, the rainbow against the red hills is quite a site.  This is a tiny plot located within the borders of Hot Springs State Park.  It is not well groomed, but protected with a fence and low rock wall.  Follow the south route through the State Park behind the swimming pool.  Continue uphill and turning to the north, and you will reach the plot located on the East edge of the pavement.  Wood steps lead up to the plot.  There is a nice, large stone in the middle of the plot that reads:
