Through the Big Horn Mountains to Cody
Today we left Sheridan to take HWY 14 from Sheridan to Cody, Wy. Although this is only about 150 miles, the Big Horn mountains lie in the way and we will climb to about 9,000 feet to get through. Naturally, there are LOTS of twists and turns on the road! We even ran into quite a bit of snow alongside the road as we crested the top! If you look carefully, you can see where the road was plowed to remove snow the day before!
As we drove along, we ran into some roadwork and when we got up to the work zone, realized that there had just been a rockslide with some BIG rocks dropping onto the roadway. Mighty glad we were not there when they dropped down!
This is a beautiful drive and was no problem for our 40' coach or my Dad's 29' class C. Just take it easy and enjoy the ride.
