Oh my! The days are starting to run together. As of this afternoon we have travelled 2600+ miles. Yesterday morning (Wednesday) we were in Denver. Left there and drove to Cheyenne Wyoming on I25 where we connected with I80 (the road that will take us to Reno eventually). Went through Laramie, Rawlins, and on to Evanston. I had no idea that the country was at such a high elevation. 6500 feet to above 8000 feet at a summit. We stayed in Evanston, WY which was 6749 feet. Lon didn't tolerate the high elevation very well. Was short of breath with any walking. So he was glad to get back down to lower elevations in Salt Lake and beyond. We saw some beautiful country tho. Wish I could have gotten more pictures of the rock formations. I saw lots of names of places that I recognized from the past but had no idea where they were. Snowbird, Alta, etc.
When we got to Elko, Nevada we exited the freeway (much to the dismay of Siri's sister) and drove through town. I lived there when my son was born in 1969 so was fun to see the town and reminisce. It has certainly grown from when I lived there. But much is still the same. We are in Winnemucca, NV tonight. It's warm here. Was 85 when we arrived. I forgot to mention that in Evanston, WY it was cold and the whole trip across Wyoming was in 50's and upper 40's. A shock after having had 90-100 degree weather in Kansas with high humidity. Evanston was low humidity and 35 degrees this am. Glad I brought a sweat shirt!!
It's been quite windy most of the way the last couple of days. Gas prices are climbing as we get closer to California.
We are now on Pacific time. Takes some adjusting. Lon was in bed at 9:30!! He rested some in the car today, might have slept a few minutes, but didn't really get his good nap in. We will leave here tomorrow and travel to Sparks, NV and stay at the Nugget Hotel. Then on to Chester for a night and a visit with my sis and niece. Can't wait to see them.
I'm ready to hit the hay. Take care. Love to all. <3
