NPR Interview

I really enjoyed Wyoming. 

My only previous visit to the state was in 2017 when on a family vacation to the Black Hills we drove over to Devil's Tower.  So, I hadn't seen much of the state.

Now, there are long, really boring and really ugly stretches.  Like the drive across the high plains from Casper to Shoshoni.  But there are also so many remarkably beautiful places.

I'd been planning this trip for over a year, and while I knew about Yellowstone and Grand Teton, I didn't know much about the rest of the state.  As I researched places to stay and things to do going and coming, it was fun to learn about more.  

And many of those exceeded my expectations.  The town of Thermopolis was a surprise.  The Wyoming Dinosaur Center there was a excellent, and Hot Springs State Park was a revelation.

The town of Pinedale is now on my list of favorite small towns with places like Williams, Arizona, Eureka Springs, Arkansas, and Westin, Missouri.  We stayed a delightful 1920's motor court and while we mostly spent the time there resting and recuperating, there was so much to do that I would enjoy going back for the activities there (such as the beautiful Fremont Lake).

One theme of the trip was seeing all sorts of other thing we could have done or places we could have visited.  Making me ponder when exactly I might go back to some of these spots in the future.
