Left Utah, entered WY. We drove up to Interstate 80 heading for Cheyenne. We decided that we were going to take 2 days to get there so we just took our time. The vegetation seemed even drier than in Utah except right along a
river or where they were irrigating.
The terrain we're crossing, in far eastern UT and most of southern WY, was referred to as the big American desert by the pioneers on the OR Trail - though it isn't actually a desert. Where it isn't rock, it's thin, poor soil, not good for much. There aren't very many water sources across southern WY, generally speaking. We made it to Rawlins WY and decided to make a day of it. We’re both pretty sure we can make it to Cheyenne tomorrow. We stopped at Western Hills RV Campground because it was close to the road and had Wi-Fi so we could catch up on my log. So far, it hasn’t been extremely hot. Maybe in the mid to
upper 80’s but remember, “It’s a dry heat”.
