We made it through the traffic by Denver and continued on to our next stop The Terry Bison Ranch RV Park. It is just over the Wyoming border and is a unique place to stay. It has a western theme and offers train rides out to see their herd of Bison and also the resident Camels. They also have a great place to eat called the Senator's Restaurant. We had lunch one day and dinner the next and it was great. We also found a great place for a piece of homemade pie at The Pie Lady in Cheyenne. We again had rain here so did not get out to do too much. After two days we headed North to the really small town of Ft. Laramie. We went out to see the Oregon Trail ruts ... read more

SEPTEMBER 5, 2014 Woke up this morning to a rather cool and dreary day. A light mist was falling from the clouds and persisted for about 30 miles northward from Cheyenne. The skies remained dark and threatening all day, but did not get serious about rainfall until I returned to within 30 miles of Cheyenne from the eastward on my way back from a sort of loop up through Glendo, Guernsey, Fort Laramie, and Torrington. Breakfast was at Village Inn. I settled on the Low Fat Mediterranean Omelet, with the low fat yogurt and granola sprinkles, and three whole grain pancakes. Hungry again by mid-afternoon, but there was no place to eat anywhere during the 84 mile drive back down Highway 85 from Torrington. Subway was for supper. I had to go pick up a prescription ... read more

SEPTEMBER 4, 2014 Breakfast at the R&B Café up the street. It is an Elvis Presley themed joint, but don’t let that prevent you from enjoying a fine meal in there. I had German sausage, eggs over greasy, hash browns, toast and coffee. It was too many carbs, but it sure was good. Much of their business is carryout breakfast burritos. The locals hereabouts think highly of those things, and those that I saw did look mighty tasty. Wyoming was the first state to allow women to vote. I stopped by the State Museum this morning to see the suffrage exhibit, but they didn’t have one. All they had was the document signed by the governor. I did, however, see the rifle owned by “Liver-Eating” Johnson. Portugee Phillips is buried here in the Lakeview Cemetery. Kung ... read more

Geo: 41.1334, -104.814It was a long day of driving through more farmland today. We left Lincoln at 8:00 and 64 degrees. As soon as we got on the road, it was easy to see that we would be back in the corn fields for another day. It appears that this part of the state has been suffering from drought. The medians and the areas by the roadside were yellow from a lack of water, and some fields were straining for life, where the corn stalks were small and yellowish and some plants had clearly died. Farms with irrigation systems were actively watering their fields with portable sprinklers that are as long as the fields are wide, some rusty with age and others shiny and new. The water created rainbows when penetrated by the rays of the ... read more

We left Moab via the Colorado River Bridge and took the slightly longer scenic road along route 128 which was a spectacular drive following the Colorado River Gorge. For the first 13 miles we followed the river within a narrow section of the gorge, providing breathtaking views of the surrounding red sandstone cliffs rising majestically all around us. The gorge then widened as the highway proceeded past Castle and the Professor Valleys, which have been the shooting locations for many western films including Wagon Master and Rio Grande, along with numerous television commercials. A little further on and the highway passed a viewpoint for one of the grandest views in the west, the red rock spires of the Fisher Towers set against the snowy covered peaks of the La Sal Mountains. After leaving the valley, the ... read more

Geo: 41.1334, -104.814So, you know I am writing this, which means at least one of us made it through day two. The purpose of this blog is not to bore you with every detail for every moment of our travels, but to provide a snapshot of our days for you to understand, imagine, and see what is happening. With that, I will describe to you what we saw in West Missouri, Iowa, and most of Nebraska. Corn, corn, corn, some cows, a poor donkey by a tree who looked so lonely among a group of cows, oh, and corn. That is it, there is nothing more to say. As for Wyoming, so far, so pretty. Before i proceed to describe how 14 hours of travel through the above mentioned states with the two of us alone ... read more

NOTE: Click on any picture to enlarge it. Day 4 - Tuesday Aug 21st,2012 After checking out of the hotel, we decided to look around Cheyenne. Since Cheyenne is the state capital of Wyoming, I thought the town would be a lot bigger. I was surprised to see the population was only about 60,000. We drove to downtown Cheyenne. They had a park area where they hold events. There was a banner over the entrance reading “Wyoming Senior Olympics” . We had to take mama’s picture there. While there we looked around in the visitor center and the train museum gift shop. As we were walking back to the car, mama saw a homeless man she wanted to give some money too. I wouldn’t let her because there were other homeless people out on the street ... read more
