In 2020 travelers seek solitude and distance because of the scourge of COVID-19 pandemic. The summer saw record crowds hiking and camping in National Parks, Monuments, Seashores, Wildlife Refuges, and even state and municipal parks. There has been no escape.
Little know to most outdoors people are th U.S. National Grasslands that are mostly located in the American West. Most have no toilets, running water, lodges oror shelters, but only dedicated primitive camp sites, miles from anywhere or anyone. One of my favorites is Rhunder Basin National Grasslands is remote eastern Wyoming,, at the headwaters of the Powder River, the last undammed major wirver if the U.S. There are no grocery stores in the area, except for two small towns on the north and east edge the rugged terrain. Some roads are for ATVs only, and there are no paved roads with the Grasslands. AI have seen wild mustangs racing the wind, an magnificent throwback to the Old West. How exhilerating!
Thunder Basin is part of the Medicine Bow National Forest and is huge, so you need a map and other info which is obtain ed from the U.S. Forest Service district office in Douglas, Wyoming, which administers the area. Contact the Douglas Ranger District at 2250 East Richards Street, Douglas, WY 82633; Phone: 307-358-4690.

Everyone wants to go to the beach, even in a pandemic.
But go in style with a pillow made for the beach while practicing safe distancing.
Relax with the one beach pillow that won’t blow away.
Beaches are windy, and pillows are lightweight. That’s a great combo for flying kites, but chasing flying pillows isn’t nearly as fun. Ballast is the only soft, weather resistant pillow that will stay put, allowing you to relax even on the windiest days. Turn the beach into the world’s most comfortable bed. Leave your alarm clock behind.

Soft breathable fabric wicks away water and sheds sand. Contoured bottom cradles neck and head. Plush padded top provides extra comfort. Custom cooling sleeve helps you stay cool under the hot sun

Beauty That Is Out of This World
As the days start to shorten and the world continues to slowly reopen, Atomic Beauty Cosmetics is here for your fall season beauty needs.
“It could not be more profound and an assurance that we are here to please even in a
pandemic! In a time where we are all wearing masks because of this global situation, to
have a beauty product as simple as a lipstick that can be worn under your mask without issue
gives us no excuse to add a little more beauty to our “current normal” beauty routines.”
– Michelle Schoser Davis, Owner, Atomic Beauty Cosmetics
Launched in 2018 (with additional shades added in 2019), Atomic Beauty Cosmetics’ Liquid Lip Silk and Liquid Lip Metal formulas are long-wearing and easy to apply. After application, they dry down to their respective silky matte finish or their soft metallic shine, becoming transfer resistant. This is perfect for no fuss and limited if any touchups. It is also refreshing that these lipsticks have shown to not relocate to the inside of your face mask. While many liquid lipsticks have a reputation for being drying on the lips, these are unique in their ability to smoothly sit on top of the lip without being drying. In fact, the formula feels so lightweight
when applied, it is almost as if the wearer does not have anything on. With 12 shades available, the Atomic Beauty Cosmetics’ Liquid Lip Silks and Atomic Beauty Cosmetics’ Liquid Lip Metals retail for $21 USD and can be found on their website,
www.atomicbeautycosmetics.com , or in their approved Stockists/Retailers. Both online and via the Atomic Beauty Cosmetics’ social media channels, there are services available to help guests pick out shades if needed. You might even be lucky enough, to have the Owner who is also a Professional Makeup Artist, Michelle Schoser Davis pick out a color or two for you personally.
