Oct 6- onward to Denver


Back on the road Again

Woke up to a gorgeous day.  The sun is so intense here, it cast strong black shadows. I could see the highway from the hotel and what was empty yesterday was buzzing with trucks and cars today.  We have about an 6 hour drive ahead of us but I plan to take frequent stops.

A reminder of the blocked highway and how seriously they take the weather

So off we go, headed through Buffalo, Casper, Cheyenne and Fort Wayne.

The poodles were eager to get moving again

The weather changed the look of the landscape, bringing out more of the contours and depth of the mountains.

The Bozeman Trial

Just outside of town we stopped at a ‘historical site.’  I know we were there to learn some history but really the dogs just wanted to play.

Silly Mica needed to poop and like all poodles needed to find some place private.  Apparently he thought the other side of the fence would prove the perfect spot.  He didn’t think about how he’d get back.

As we approached Buffalo, the snow disappeared

    Hey Vikki, I spent time, as a kid in, Cheyenne. Gorgeous scenery! Your pics brought back memories of climbing over barber wires fences while exploring and wonderful (kid) novels of mustangs and ranches. We lived on the outskirts of town and my dad even entered the beard growing contest for Pioneer Days!

  2. Too funny about the beard growing contest… ha ha ha. Cheyenne is very different from when I passed through it in 1988. It was a little dusty town then. I can imagine it’s much different from when you were a kid. It’s a very nice small city now.
