Day 3: Salt Lake City to Cheyenne, WY

Day 3 of our California to New York road trip put us through Salt Lake City (hands down the cleanest city I have ever been in) to Cheyenne, Wyoming. Film, television and photos don't really do the stark beauty of Wyoming any justice. Beautiful etched mountains and lush flat lands really makes your imagination run wild to a time when it was all solely inhabited by Native Americans. 

 Wind River, Wyoming was my first opportunity to check out the almost mythical Bison. An animal once almost extinct to now being highly protected, the bison is a sight to be seen up close.

Outside of a small town in Wyoming called Rawlins we came across this stand along church and a set of swings. With the closest human being about 50 miles away it was pretty interesting to find an active church on the side of the highway. I guess when it's time to pray it's time to pray.

Rawlins was an impromptu stop on our road trip. Spotted from the highway we could clearly see that wasn't modern day town with big box stores and chain restaurants propping it up. Rawlins is a town that has been around since the late 1800's. The store fronts still boast beautiful hand painted signs.

These deer happened to just find themselves a nice shady spot in town and could not be bothered by anybody. We later found out this is a pretty regular occurrence.

At last we arrived in Cheyenne, WY. Of course we had to stop into the Wrangler. Day 3 wrapped, time for a drink and on to Day 4.
