Casper Mountain A Hidden Gem On July 4th


K2's Ophelia Young reports, oyoung@k2tv.com: 

Tonight, some will watch fireworks from the lakes.  Some will watch from the Casper Events Center.  But a few will watch from a couple thousand feet above Casper. 

Some Casper residents chose to spend their fourth of July on Casper Mountain, swinging on hammocks, turning hot dogs, and laughing with family. 

Some were there camping since Friday, others went up just for the day.  But all were there to enjoy the peace and quiet that exists right in their own backyard, and that's why it was the perfect place to go for kids as well as furry members of the family. 

And all agreed, Casper Mountain is a secret haven for those proud to be an outdoor American.
