Delicious (?) chicken offerings in avending machine at the AirportQuality Inn in SLC.
Day 4 - September 18th- Up and out early! Only took me 10-15 minutes to get thru SLC. No construction to speak of between SLC and Laramie. I had planned to get to Cheyenne. But was hard-pressed to figure out what the upside would be to riding through Cheyenne on a Friday afternoon. Beautiful day! Big winds! I'm estimating well over 30 knots. The high plains in the early morning and later afternoon are serene. Saw a number of antelope grazing. Crossed the Continental Divide 3 time. The 3rd time at 7,000 feet. FYI : a great stop is I 80 east exit 5, Evanston, Wy.: Chevron, Maverick, McDonalds, Arby's and Starbucks.
A few pics from today's travels:
Marker at rest area 50 miles west of Laramie. I'malmost positive this is the same rest area Manjo andI stopped here several years ago on our way backeast. We saw a caravan that included a stage coachand covered wagons. Everybody was in period dress.
Wy. high plaines late afternoon.
Shooting for the Iowa-Nebraska border tomorrow.
