West of Cheyenne it did start looking a little slick in spots, and it went downhill from there. Well, actually it went uphill literally, but down figuratively.It fascinates me that dangerous things are often beautiful too.
It is beautiful when the wind picks up snow and starts moving it across the roads. It always gives me the sensation of driving on flowing water.
Along the way there were a few incidents, and evidence of people having some issues that they had escaped from and moved on to try and forget about.
The snow plows were out and at work getting drifting snow off the east bound side.
The road finally became packed snow for a brief time, and then about half way down the hill descending into Laramie, it began to clear a bit.
Down in Laramie they had gotten snow, but the roads were pretty clear. The sun was almost gone behind the storm clouds that were hanging in the southwestern sky, and west of town we encountered one of those odd weather experiences. Along with the 20 degree temperature and the snow, it became foggy.We're nearing Rawlins now. We'll stop there for the night. Just wanted to get across Elk Mountain tonight in case they close it. It wasn't slick, but the wind is blowing the snow around out here, as usual. There are rivers of white blowing across the lanes and reflecting the light from our headlights. Though it wasn't slick, they had dropped the speed limit from the norm of 75 down to 50. But the temperature is up to 22 now, and the sky is clear, so it ought to be a peaceful night in Wyoming.
