That is a very long drive. I was too tired to update when we finally made it to our hotel last night so I'm catching up today.
Although I have been assured that there are some very beautiful parts of Wyoming, the part we went through was mostly rocks and tumbleweeds. Also, very much uninhabited-I would suspect for those very reasons. It was the most desolate place I have ever been. Certainly not a place you would want to break down! Plus, to make it just that much more miserable there was a high wind advisory in effect. At times it would actually be darker because of all the dust blowing in the air. If that happens often you could add it to the list of why people don't live there!
But we did take one detour to do something cool. We stopped at Devil's Tower national monument. In addition to being a national monument it is apparently also famous for being in the movie Close Encounter of the Third Kind, which I have not seen.
National Parks don't allow pets on trails so here is Legend in the parking area before we had to put her back in the car to take a short hike.
On the way up to the tower there is a prairie dog town. The little guys were literally popping up everywhere. Despite being carriers of plague, they were pretty cute.
