Greetings from Casper, Wyoming! What a day. We traveled 449 miles today. A chilly morning was tempered with clear sunny weather. By contrast, most of the day was driving on I-80. There were at least three major construction projects, most spanning many miles of one lane traffic at slow speeds. Augh! (BTW, this was true for Nevada as well. Also of note, we did not see one worker either day.)
Nonetheless, it was a wonderful day. The farther away from home we get the more remote and expansive the scenery becomes. We are reminded what a beautiful country we live in.
Tonight we spend in Casper, 120 miles north of I-80. This afternoon we explored the downtown area and were impressed how well preserved and active it was, including three old movie theaters still in use.
We are looking forward to the next 2 days. We will spend less time driving and more time exploring the monuments near and around Rapid City, South Dakota.
Here are some of the pictures we like most from today.
