From South to North

We just got back from a quick two-day trip to Spokane, WA, and we took "the scenic route" back, along US 30. Just taking the little bit of extra time to drive these amazing historic roads instead of whizzing by on the Interstate is worth it. There were all sorts of road cuts and rivers (the Bear River!) that we wouldn't have seen otherwise.

We decided to start our scenic journey in Cokeville, WY, which is a wonderful old railroad town. Though it was pretty funny to see a sign for "Museum" off the main road. We'll have to go back and see what kind of museum that could be!

Sweetie was exhausted once we got home, but she loves traveling. And hotels. Remember though, it's important for kids to stay hydrated during long road trips, even if that means extra bathroom breaks. :) Keep water in the car at all times!

Here are a few pictures:
Ok, not everything is super-exciting....




A little slice of Wyoming heaven....
After an event-filled day, the driver needs a break!

 It was hard not to stop at Fossil Butte National Monument as we passed. But as we usually go there several times a year  anyway.....

Side note: Dillon, MT is *awesome*. A small town that has been really thoughtful about how they want their town to look in the future. They've clearly worked with local businesses to help them thrive without gentrification. Would totally move there if I wanted to open a business.
