According to Google Maps, today’s route was 379 Miles, and it should have taken us 7 hours and 12 minutes. We took our time though, with a nice stop for lunch by a river, and dinner at a park in the city of Casper. Our time was 11 hours. We were almost always on backroads today, more spectacular scenery, starting with a close up view of the Grand Tetons. The goal was to push eastward as fas as possible, and we ended up in a tiny town called Wright, Wyoming. Staying here at the local RV park, which is nothing to write home about, but serves the purpose. We would have just found a roadside spot if there were any, but this is not that kind of place, so we took the in-town option.

Not the best overnight location we’ve had, but it works

Tomorrow we are heading up through the Black Hills National Forest, and onto I-90, the main East-West freeway on the northern route that takes us over to Chicago. After all the backroads, we’re not looking forward to the interstate freeways, but the choices become more slim in the Midwest. We’ll see what we can do.

    Wyoming has some beautiful parts and some not so beautiful parts… enjoy it all
