Super 8 Casper East
Travel Blogs from Casper
I've slacked off on the blog during this trip due to being very tired and I've been spending lots of time in the rain. Today's trip takes me from Dillon, MT to Casper, WY via Yellowstone and Grand Teton National parks. I awoke to a steady drizzle and temps in the low 40's for this leg of my trip. I was tempted to crawl back into the bed but I realized I had to cover 530 miles today and I should get started ASAP. I headed out at 0630 ...
