I have been waiting for the drive through Wyoming ever since we flew over it going to visit Oregon. Let me just say that it does not disappoint. The pieces that make up America fit together so perfectly. It is hard to put into words how mesmerizing it is to see the landscape change as you cross the country. If you have done this journey, I hope I am doing it justice. If you haven’t taken the trip, I highly recommend it. It is truly the only way to gain an appreciation for how beautiful the United States is. Cue “America the Beautiful.” Actually, I did break out into a little rendition before Ryan cut me off. He is very used to my random outbursts into songs, but you know, the car isn’t getting any bigger after 1700ish miles together. Ha! But seriously, this state is so awesome. We had several people warn us not to let our gas tank get too close to empty because of how deserted some parts of the state are. I haven’t ever seen anything like this. Miles and miles of unspoiled, natural land composed of hills, the Rocky mountains, plateaus, and even some wild horses. It does get tedious after awhile when things seem so barren, but being used to the stress of driving on the East Coast it is a welcome change. As the states open up and things are more spread out, so too changes the mindset. I met a man working in a gas station today. I was asking him about the enormous deer heads he had hanging up. He was born in New York and also lived in Oregon. He told me that life is 100% different out west, that I would love it, and that I should take up hunting. And while I probably won’t take up hunting, I know that he was absolutely right about the first two.
