USA 8: Wyoming
Crossing into Wyoming I made good speed as I travelled along the plateau, and then climbed up the Owl Creek mountains to eat lunch under a big blue sky, with the sun’s heat cancelling out any discomfort from the strong breeze.
The wide open spaces in the big sky country meant I made good speed through Wyoming, and the only distraction was the beautiful nature I passed; although I did have to go out of my way to avoid ranches a couple of times.
The dry weather meant I got thirsty quite often, but I drank from the rivers I passed: the Yellowstone, Powder, Green and Snake.
I particularly enjoyed the Green water, and thought it gave my coat a bit of a colour boost on the green front. Didn’t enjoy the Snake water too much I’m afraid, and would recommend you avoid it if at all possible.
I made it to the border with Colorado by nightfall, and slept under an amazing night sky; there were stars and comets everywhere, and it took me a while to get to sleep, as I was enjoying the natural light show above so much.
