We are again ahead of schedule. I had planned for us to be in Buford, WY tonight, but Mark pointed to Buford as we passed by. It was basically a gas station.
I got a long shot of the temple towers in Brigham City this morning.
We spent most of the day traveling in and out of the Rockies.
Driving through the “rain shadow” side of the Rockies
There was a view point where we were able (just barely) to walk up and get a good vantage point on the red rock walls.
I discovered my camera was still set for dusk. This was what the rock looked like when my camera was set for auto adjust.
Trying to show the steepness of the path Mark and I walked up!
There were prairie dogs all over the place. They make almost a bird-like chirp.
Mark with the U-Haul and our truck
We saw lots of wind mills
Dry, craggy mountains
…and back in the snow.
We stopped to look at the Lincoln Memorial overlooking the Lincoln Highway — the old Hwy 30 and the newer Hwy 80.
Home, home on the range, where the deer and the antelope play!
We seem to finally be in the grass lands. I also saw a few scattered oil wells today. (This was a really long telephoto shot from a moving truck!)
At the rate we’re going, we could be in Door County a day earlier than we anticipated!
