After our snack at Goodrich Ice Cream, we headed west out of Nebraska and into extreme southeastern Wyoming. We literally just snipped the corner of the state.
We had one stop on the way through Wyoming – Cheyenne. We were headed to see the capitol building, and had originally planned to have supper in Cheyenne. However, we had been really productive and made great time, so it wasn’t time for supper, and we chose to drive on and stop somewhere else.
Heading towards Cheyenne from Nebraska was pretty flat. You could see for miles and miles. We had some rain to drive through, and it was really interesting to watch the rain shafts cross the road.
We’d been taking smaller roads through most of Nebraska and Wyoming up to this point. After Cheyenne, we took the interstate to Colorado. I expected this to be boring, but the views were really incredible! We could see the Rocky Mountains out the window to our right most of the way from Cheyenne, Wyoming, to Fort Collins, Colorado. The storms had cleared up so we had nice clear skies and beautiful views.
But before we reached Colorado, we stopped for a bit in the capital of Wyoming.
