We pulled into the free, municipal c.g. in Brush, CO at dusk. We have stayed here twice before. We drove further than we planned to but were trying to get north of the snow storm coming in at night! I cooked my first dinner in Stuby! Steak, salad and corn. Everyone deemed it delicious! It was early to bed.
We awoke to 27 degrees and heavy snow flurries! We got on the road early and after a quick stop at McDonald's for breakfast sandwiches (Al volunteered to make the run in the snow!)
We headed through Greeley to Cheyenne, WY and then north. The day was cold, in the 30's, but breathtakingly beautiful! We traversed snow covered mountains and many acres of black cows and antelope! Oh yes, and a Jackalope too! Fortunately the roads were dry.
We made frequent stops for breaks and a combo gas stop/Safeway run for essentials in Douglas, WY. Al did find some essential Twinkies too! Our day took us as high as 6300 ft.
Yes, a very long day but we look forward to a short 230 mile trek tomorrow to meet up with our Alaska traveling buddies, Lynn and Mickey Waite. We
can't wait to see them! We were thankful for a dump station and water fill too tonight. 30 amp electric is also welcome.
I fixed breakfast for dinner of eggs and fried ham. I had baked a big ham before leaving San Angelo so it has been our lunch staple too. The joke for 3 days has been, "ls the ham gone yet?" Nope!
Another early to bed.
