Ok, we didn’t make it to Denver. We stopped short in Loveland, Colorado, since it was getting late. We had spent some time knocking around Laramie, Wyoming after being menaced by a few snow flurries at the pass.
The rocks and cliffs were spectacular leaving Salt Lake City and we climbed steadily with snowy peaks around us. There were ghostly old mining operations by the highway left to rust, and towns like Evanston and Rock Springs with fresh development. We fueled up at Little America in Wyoming, which at one point billed itself as the world’s largest truck stop.
