Guys, I am finally out of the midwest. Woo-hoo! I woke up this morning to this:
I think the wooden structure in the foreground is designed to shelter the rest stop from the winds. I saw them all along roads and fields while I was driving through Wyoming. As you might expect, it’s a good place to build a wind farm.
I was all ready to motor through WY to Ogden, UT, where I’m currently stopped for a bit. I pulled off at a rest stop on a whim, and I’m so glad I did! There was a whole colony of small mammals near the picnic area. So cute!
I should make it to Smith tomorrow night. My body is definitely protesting all the driving–my back and my right knee complain now if I drive for more than two hours straight at a time. I have about 11.5 hours of driving time to go–the end is in sight!
