|We're back on the road again. Today we entered the 10th state of our trip, Wyoming, the Forever West state. We left the Oregon Trail and got back on I-80. After entering Wyoming just east of Cheyenne, we traveled the southern part of the state. In fact, Colorado was only a mile away at one point, but we didn't take that side trip, so the Colorado sticker won't be going on the map. East of Cheyenne we traveled through the Medicine Bow National Forest and saw tall timber trees, the first we've seen in about a week, so we stopped for a picnic lunch to enjoy them. As we left the national forest, we drove down a steep grade into the plains of Wyoming, boy are they flat and brown. On occasion we saw a farm house out on the plains with some cattle and lots of wind mill farms. Off to the west were the foothills and mountains. We climbed up into the foothills as we approached our destination for the night, Rawlins, Wyoming. We traveled 255 miles today and saw our trip odometer turn to 3,000 miles, Wow! Can you believe we've traveled so far in just over two weeks? We can't! We ended our evening by watching some fierce thunderstorms come across the mountain range. The sky is so vast here and the lightening show was spectacular, until it came our way. The camper really shook with the wind gusts. The good thing is the temperature became very comfortable for sleeping.
