Day 4 – 330 miles
Jess and I successfully made it to California. Life kept me away from finishing our travel blog, but now I can.
My wife and I woke up the next day feeling refreshed. We took our time getting ready because we were planning on only driving about 300 miles to Evanston. Because of this, we took a more scenic route through the Snowy Range Mountains along Wyoming Highway 130. It is a very beautiful drive. I recommend it to you if you happen to be in southeastern Wyoming.
The rest of the drive across southern Wyoming, however, is rather boring. The 300 miles along Interstate 80 in Wyoming is desolate. It’s the high desert plains. Absolutely nothing to see, unless you like construction crews. Move along.
We stopped in Evanston, WY. We stayed that night with my grandma and had a good time playing volleyball with my extended family. Being a veteran of trips to Las Vegas, my grandmother helped us plan our route through Utah. After some home cooking, a rare treat from grandma these days, and another good night’s sleep, we headed out the next morning for Las Vegas.
