Long Wyoming drive today but very enjoyable.

We left West Yellowstone this morning after hunting down some propane and went across the upper part of the middle loop and out the east exit on hiway 14. We were headed for Sheridan Wyoming and got there after about 8 hours of driving. What a diverse selection of scenery, from the woods, rivers and animals of yellowstone to the plains, farms, painted desert hills and river carved canyons. After heading up Shell Creek canyon you feel like your climbing to the top of the world! It was a great drive and I highly recommend it.
This is near the entrance to Shell Canyon.

It's truly amazing out there. And if you get a chance, try and return in winter, it's a different experience, especially driving your car up to the east gate (where the road closes, but you can then walk in even farther).

Yesterday the wind wasn't to bad though it rained a good portion of the day off and on. Today we are I. Eastern Wyoming approaching South Dakota and the wind is a little more brisk and has moved me a little on a few occasions.
Currently we're at a rest stop near Moorcroft having lunch. Today's drive is not nearly as interesting as yesterday's.

Your bringing back great memories of that region. The change in terrain is truly fascinating. Your probably far gone by now, but I'll bet you enjoyed every minute of that drive!

cheers,
Joopy

DW hates heights. Drove East on the East entrance road, she did NOT like it! Didn't bother me though as I'm used to driving on roads like that.

Hey Joopy, we're in Ohio now and have seen lots of nice country but that stretch is definitely one of my faves. I'm not particularly liking this toll road stuff around here, though we're off them now for a while. The road we took thru Chicago area was so bad we broke and bounced the right hand mirror glass right out of the mount. The only thing that saved it was the heater wires. I had to pull off and temp rig it back on with a couple of bungi cords.

Hey Joopy, looking at your avatar, you need to make at trip out here to the west coast!
