DAY 44: CUSTER, SD TO DENVER, CO

The forty-fourth day had arrived and it commenced by us entering Wyoming, the cowboy state. The welcome sign includes the famous mountains and a cowboy which represents the state very well. We then checked out a large dump truck from 1983 used for mining. This was at a coal mining museum based at the North Antelope Rochelle Mine in Gillette, WY. There were some antelopes close by. The animals seemed to be used to people because they didn’t run away very quickly. You can see how close to the residents they are.  Some construction was being taken care of on a bridge. The CAT machines were awesome working through the debris. As we headed down a long gravel road we caught a photo of a truck driving very fast with a dust cloud around them. On roads like this in the countryside, there are very few travelers on the road. Next, Casper, WY would be our next stop. Nicknamed “The Oil City” and has a long history of oil and cowboy culture, dating back to the development of the nearby Salt Creek Oil Field. The welcome sign features a cowboy statue called “20% Chance of Flurries,” in Casper, Wyoming. Casper was a critical point in the tour in terms of charging. We only had access to a level 2 charger at the Fremont VW dealership. There, we charged the I.D. 4 for about 8 hours. Hopping back on the road, we travelled down some long stretches of highway and some were long and curvy. There were not many people driving on these wide open roads. We saw lots of antennas in this region because the internet and phone signal is quite weak. The sun began to set and the long stretches of prairie roads looked marvelous. The least populated U.S. state offered us countless opportunities to take in the immense scenery. We finished our day by with a shot of a giant circle of grass farmland.
