Travels with #WoolleyLamb

In August / September we took a US road trip during which I added four new states to my tally – Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho and Montana. One of those was unexpected. We also gained a new travelling companion – meet Woolley Lamb! Our first night was spent near Denver International Airport in Woolley’s Classic Suites (highly recommended) where we met Woolley. Staff suggest you take him with you, then post photos of where he’s been. While his friends played about pretending they were at the Olympics…

… Woolley came with us to:

The Snowy Range, WY:

The Wind River Range, WY:

Grand Teton National Park, WY, where he needed a bit of help not to blow away:

Mesa Nature Trail, ID:

Yellowstone National Park, WY:

Woolley Lamb

The Montana State Line. This is claimed to be the highest State welcome sign in the US – and it marks the 45th Parallel too, so we were exactly half way between the North Pole and the Equator:


Rocky Mountain National Park, CO:

Mile High City – Denver, CO, where, on the thirteenth step of the State Capitol, Woolley was exactly one mile above sea-level:

What now? I have been frantically sorting through hundreds of photographs and a huge pile of  information leaflets so that I can blog about our road-trip. Woolley, on the other hand, has been relaxing in a corner of the sofa.

However, he needn’t get too comfortable! We have plans for him – maybe he will meet some of his Scottish cousins on a country walk and we can send the pictures back to the hotel. In the meantime, blogging proper on our trip begins next week.

Hope to see you then!

      He seems to be enjoying himself in his new Scottish home!

    Well it looks like a good time was had by all on your recent road trip. Will be interesting to see Wolley Lamb make his way through Scotland

      Thanks Lisa. Poor Woolley has been confined to barracks since we got back -we’ve been too busy to have any day trips! Hope that changes soon 🙂

    Loved our road trip to Yellowstone, even though it was freezing cold and thick with snow and ice a lot of the way, and that was the end of May. I’d love to go back in summer. Woolley is so cute and very pampered by the look of it. 😅

      It was cold in the mornings when we were there (end August) with iced-up windscreens a couple of times, but it soon warmed up.

    I love that the lamb had such a great trip:) Wonderful vistas and love the humour

      Poor Lamb, he’s led a very dull life since we came home! I haven’t taken him anywhere.
