Chapter 10 - Cheyenne to Casper, Wyoming
Today be woke up to blue skies and warmer weather, at least warmer by Wyoming standards as it was in the high 60s by 7 AM with mid-to high 70s expected by mid-day. This was ideal weather for our 3-1/2 hour drive north out of Cheyenne up I-25 to Casper, Wyoming a distance of around 180 miles. Besides the beautiful weather, the traffic on the interstate 25 was very light as the photograph to the left clearly shows. The scenery was interesting consisting again of rolling green hills but as the photograph also clearly shows there were almost no trees and the few trees that we did see were around the farm buildings and along the few creeks that passed alongside or under the interstate. Kathy did see on several different occasions in the distance, small herds of what she thought were antelope. These animals were in addition to the frequent herds of cattle that dotted the landscape during most the morning.
