... so we got on to I80 and headed for Rock Springs. We saw some very interesting clouds and skies along the way, especially around Elk Mountain. Continuing across, we actually saw some sunshine, then right back into rain. It is getting warmer, though. Even at 6975 feet, it is 53F.

To get there we found this new thing called RV 4x4'ing. Knocking cups off their shelves, ...
... around the Yellowstone lake. The latter is a much longer route with less to see. We were told that the "Old Faithful" route was still closed, but Carolyn claimed out was opened a couple days ago. She turned out right.
