Wyoming… What can I say about Wyoming? Some might consider it the middle
of nowhere, and I can see why, but my drives through this state have been interesting.
I drove through the state on I-80 quite a bit when I was driving truck. It was in Wyoming that I saw antelope and prairie dogs for the first time, which I thought was pretty cool. There is also an interesting rest area on I-80 in Wyoming. What makes it unique is a large bust of Abraham Lincoln. The first time I saw this bust was on a foggy morning as I was driving truck. Visability was very poor, but high up in the distance was Abe Lincoln’s head! I was puzzled as to why a sculpture of our 16th president would be in the middle of Wyoming. I found out that this section of I-80 is part of the Lincoln Highway, which stretches from New York to California.
And more recently I received a speed warning ticket from the Wyoming State Patrol as I was driving home from a trip to Yellowstone. I was doing six miles over the posted speed limit, which I will admit I do regularly when I drive on the highways at home. So I was surprised by it, because it was only 6 miles over and people were passing me. Maybe it was the red rental I was driving that caught the po-po’s eye!
