    I-80 We've missed you!

    August 7, 2017 in the United States

    Back on I-80 in Laramie to head west to Rock Springs. 287 from Fort Collins, CO saw some good hills and barren land. Definite change from Denver. Saw a lot more horses/ranches than we did in NB. Rainy and cloudy, but still gorgeous territory. Settlers out here were hearty souls!

    Driving to Laramie

    May 7 in the United States

    After our trolley tour we took our truck and drove out to see Laramie. On the way we took a couple detours.

    We love watching this show called Aerial America, which shows different states and regions and their local attractions and natural wonder from an aerial view. We watched several episodes before this trip to get ideas of what would be fun to see! One of the sights was the Ames monument, a fantastically expensive monument that was build by the Union Pacific railroad to memorialize the contribution that the Ames brothers made to planning and funding the transcontinental railroad. No mention was made that on many accounts they are considered to have swindled the American people out of tons of money. The monument once sat alongside the railroad, but the tracks were moved and now it’s on a dirt road.

    Next we drove through Buford, smallest town in the country (population 1). It is also the highest town situated on I-80 (8,000 feet).

    Next up was the Abraham Lincoln Memorial Monument, situated at the highest point that I80 traverses across the country (8,640 feet). The location also holds a tribute to Henry Joy, President of the Packard Motor Company. Together these two men created the first road that united our country, the Lincoln Highway (opened 1913).

    Laramie

    May 7 in the United States

    We spent our time in Laramie cruising the historic district (smaller than Cheyenne but cute), driving the University of Wyoming campus, and looking at the wealthy neighborhoods with newer homes. We pulled over to go into War Memorial stadium, which holds 29,000 visitors. This would be a fun place to watch a football game!

    Dia 14, Laramie WY, 8/7/2018

    July 8 in the United States

    Salimos de Green River sobre las 8:30, a las dos horas y pico paramos en Rawlin Wya estirar las piernas y de paso visitamos una prision museo que fue una prision de frontera bravisima, luego seguimos hasta llegar a Laramie. El airbnb es en el sótano de un bungalow azul precioso. Es todo un departamento con living comedor, cocina, baño y dos habitaciones. Almorzamos en un parque, luego descansamos un poco y después nos fuimos a Vedauwoo, un parque que queda a 20 minutos de auto de Laramie. Tiene unas formaciones rocosas muy lindas, parecidas a La Pedriza en Madrid pero más impresionantes. Anduvimos entre rocas inmensas explorando por un poco más de una hora y luego nos volvimos al departamento. Ahora vamos a cenar y escuchar música en vivo en un bar muy famoso en Laramie que se llama Buckhorn. Mañana tenemos un trecho largo por delante, unos 600 kilómetros hasta Cairo, Nebraska.Read more
