Side winds suck.
Today I left Medicine Bow about 9am and headed up WY487 to WY77. 77 was not as good as I had hoped, a somewhat choppy ride and not much for exciding scenery. Wyoming has a lot of great vista's but it also has a lot of sagebrush type grazing lands and boy can the wind ever blow. Today I had a crosswind the first 70 miles and then either a cross wind or head wind pretty much the rest of the day. I would say the winds averaged 20>25mph, which is great for the wind turbines I saw, just not so much for me. I think that I stopped at every roadside marker. Alot of them had to do with the westward migration in the 1800's. It makes for some interesting reading and I am glad that I don't have to make the journey in a covered wagon, they where a tuff breed. Some of the scenery pictures that I took just don't do the view justice. What I saw in person was just super. OK time to add a few pics.
