A few photographs from an unseasonably warm and very windy Friday in late-November, visiting almost-familiar places along U.S. Highway 6 in Nebraska.

Today, I drove from Casper to Cheyenne in a very round-about sort of way and continued to discover that a majority of towns on the official Wyoming highway map are little more than a bump in the road. Wyoming is just so incredibly empty. It makes Western Nebraska look populated in comparison.
Tomorrow is home!
I have a tendency to overdo it a bit on these road trips, attempting to squeeze as much exploration into every day as I possibly can. This causes me to change plans and drive further - sometimes much further - which makes for very long days. Today was one of those days.
But it was a very good day, for the most part. I drove through the amazing Wind River Canyon for the second time, the first in over a decade. I visited several very touristy towns and the nearly forgotten Shoshoni. And, due to my aforementioned propensity to always need to see more, I ended up driving through the Bighorn Mountains on U.S. Highway 16. By time I reached my destination in Casper, night had already fallen.
Wyoming is a beautiful, desolate, vast place. There's just so much to see.
