I’m not sure how it compares to Glen Canyon size-wise, but it was among the tallest I’ve seen. There is a truck parked in front of the red building that will give some scale. You have to go there on purpose – the dam itself is about 50 miles off of I-90 and the lake extends into northern Wyoming. You can’t (easily) get to the southern end from the northern except via boat.
We caught this scene while passing through the Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area in North central Wyoming a few days ago!
I’m a few days behind in processing photos – we are currently in Pullman, Washington. This one will hopefully whet the appetite until I can get closer to caught up.
Weird weather day in store today – after beautiful skies and warm yesterday, they are talking high winds and blowing dust with high of only 70. Sending it Monte’s way, it sounds like!
This one could be classified as one of my “Roadside Finds” but it was a nice old mill in a very small town in rural Nebraska that I thought was worthy of a Postcard. 😉
National Monument commemorating the Homestead Act of 1862 with restored buildings alongside a tallgrass prairie. Interesting place!
We’re currently in Billings, MT and enjoying our first “non-get-up-and-go” morning since we left home. It’s been 5 days of beautiful but somewhat grueling driving, done on purpose because our ultimate destination is still a few days away! We’ve seen some amazing scenery and I’ve taken (more than) a few photos, but haven’t wanted to spend my down time on the computer. So here’s a tidbit to keep the flow going. I’ll probably work on a few more soon but it’s time for breakfast! 😉
News photos of crowds on beaches are somewhat cliche these days. Even though I’m not a photojournalist, this is my contribution.
We’ve returned to base and are working on getting caught up on things. Photos to follow.
We got our first look at an official part of Route 66 today – this was on the “winds from Chicago” part. We’ve got plans to do a lot more of Route 66, but not this trip!
