Day 2 – Glenwood Springs, CO to Rapid City, SD

Another day of amazing views. Unfortunately I am staying in a cheesy hotel  in Rapid City without internet access in my room so I am typing this in the lobby just as filler until I can upload pictures.  I drove though a canyon in Colorado with spectacular high walls of rock and trees, and the raging White river to the side..

Then over the pass near Vail up to 10,600 feet where there was snow on the ground !!

and then near Denver I turned North, headed for Cheyenne, WY for my next Supercharger.  In Cheyenne the Superchargers were in a parking lot (as most are) where there was an RV show, so I met a couple of guys who were there for the RV’s but were more interested in my car and how it worked.  That seems to happen at almost every Supercharger.

Wyoming is so rolling and green !!  Not what I imagined.

Then North to a very small town in the middle of nowhere, Wyoming called Lusk where there was a supercharger at the Covered Wagon Motel.  An unlikely combination..

About all there is of Lusk, WY !

From there, another couple hours up to Rapid City, South Dakota and another Supercharger in a mall parking lot.  Amazing clouds which you will see in the pictures..

and a delicious sushi restaurant that had the highest food rating of almost anything in Rapid City.  Great Japanese scallops, and wild Scottish salmon.  Two nights in a row.  Good travel food !

These Western states sure are BIG !   I takes lots of hours to get across these states..

I’ll post pictures when I find internet again..    Who knew…   Good night

    We’re enjoying all the photos and we are so happy all seems to be going so fast and well! Way to go Road Warrior! Be safe out there and have fun :-)))))

  2. You seem to be going so fast. I don’t know if you got my email re Tony Gwynn’s death. So sad. I cried, but because Dad couldn’t read all the articles. He loved him for the man he was as well as the player. Are you listening to a book? I loved the article about you. Thanks. Happy trails!!!!
