Day 55 – to Saratoga, Wyoming, 67 miles, 2,456 total
A two-day post! We’ve now entered another state — Wyoming.
Our ride to Saratoga was a pleasant one . . . and we enjoyed the wide-open vistas of this part of the country.
We spent the night in the Sand and Sage Motel — at one point three deer wondered into the parking lot. It is definitely the rural west!
Day 56 – to Rawlins, Wyoming, 42 miles, 2,498 total
A nice short day. What made the day a little challenging was riding 17 miles on Interstate 80 (unavoidable). Even though the shoulder was wide, we had to dodge truck tire shards the whole way . . . and I ended up getting a flat tire.
Mark and I ate at a very good Mexican restaurant in Sinclair, Wyoming, partway along on our ride.
A chocolate milk shake was my reward when I arrived here in Rawlins.
We met Elizabeth at our campground, who is riding across the country and has just finished a two-year engagement with the Peace Corp in Thailand.
