I loved the big sky. The cross winds were something fierce though. The weather channel announced 25 mph winds and warned against tornados. I could only hope I wasn't near any but surely kept an eye on the sky. I remember being lifted half a lane over in the air and set back down again driving along the Gorge. As a consequence I hugged my side of the lane not wanting a repeat performance of that exciting moment.
I love the terrain, the rock formations, the colours, the blue sky and clouds, the emerald green vegetation and tumble weeds. Real cattle country. I imagine seeing cowboys and rodeo and think of the plains Indians on spanish ponies. Rivers are named after the different local tribes. I loved the red hills and those layered coloured ones too.
There was road construction in one place, Real off road driving conditions. I saw quite a few herds of antelope. There were also black angus cattle and some long horns. In the evening I saw a few deer as well. Lots of wildlife in southern Wyoming and northern Colorado.
