Our drive today was very scenic as we traveled North on US 89 & Interstate 15. Our view was filled with red rocks. Then after we crossed into Wyoming there were formations like sand dunes (probably weather worn sandstone mountains), and rolling mounds of light colored rock. We passed the Continental Divide today, the eastern side.
We passed a sign for Expedition Island
so had to check it out.
We stopped for lunch at Cracker Barrel just before Provo. Our stop for the night was at Sweetwater County Fairgrounds in Rock Springs. It was fenced like corrals with the utilities behind a fence and almost too far away. They probably get a lot of horse trailers and have to keep the horses away from the utility fixtures.
We went to visit the 1920's Elks Lodge in historic downtown. It was a three story brick in the style of the turn of the century. It was a quiet night in the lounge, just a few nice folks. They gave us a tour of the lodge and told us some of the history. When we told them we were headed to Casper and then Gillette, they told us a more scenic route to take tomorrow going to Casper instead of the Interstate.
