Yesterday I had the good fortune to travel through the Esterbrook area south of Douglas, WY. I love the Laramie Range and need to spend a lot more time in those mountains. The country suits me and I’m quite sure it does many others.
I’d describe Esterbrook as a summer recreational hidey-hole. There are private homes/cabins tucked away in the forest below the massive Laramie Peak. The Medicine Bow National Forest is close, and the area looks to be a sweet spot for wildlife. If you’ve got access to a fishing stream it’s got to be great, too.
Large ranch operations have preserved much of the country in open space. I’d love to spend a day gathering cattle there one day. The views are amazing.
