Greetings from Laramie WY:

I’m pretty certain hurricane season has started..? but i am in the middle of a winter storm warning as the young lady at the check in desk so kindly informed us, I informed her that we weren’t sure exactly what that meant. Apparently it means i might be greetings you from Laramie tomorrow as well.

We started this morning in Kansas. If I were Dorothy I think I may have stayed in Oz. Long rolling plains gently increasing in elevation all the way to Colorado. Hill sides littered with oil wells as well as wind turbines.

After reaching Colorado our plan was to head up to Rocky Mountain National Park and see some scenery and hopefully catch some wild life. Half way up the hill it started to snow…shortly there after we noticed the cars coming down the hill piled with snow.

Change of adventure; we turned around and headed to Fort Collins to check out some breweries. We first went to the Odell Brewing company and each sampled a flight of beers, and then headed to New Belgium Brewing Company around the corner.

thankfully the Brewery closed early putting us back on the road before the snow storm became too ridiculous.

Now in Laramie, enjoying a fabulous dinner from possibly the only vegetarian restaurant in Wyoming, Sweet Melissas.

    I encountered a snowstorm in May once… Thankfully, I didn’t have to drive. It is a strange event for a Florida girl to wrap her head around. 🙂

    Noooooo! you missed the Brew Pub!! So good….

    Oh well. The other breweries are pretty tasty.

    • next time! the best part about New Belguim Brewery was that they didn’t sell pints, free samples only.

      Yes, also good thing that you are not Ignatius. He never would have taken such a journey as you have.
