In June 2014 I drove from Montana to Missouri, a trip of about 1700 miles. I drove south from Laurel, MT, into Wyoming. In Wyoming I went hrough Cody, Wyoming, home of Buffalo Bill Cody, through a town aptly named Thermopolis, with the largest mineral hot spring in the world, through an incredible canyon called the Wind River Canyon, through the most astonishing place called Hell’s Half Acre, through mountains and hills and scrubby prairie, past thousands of antelope, and finally into Nebraska. In Nebraska I stopped in North Platte, which just happened to be the vacation home of Buffalo Bill Cody, and saw an extraordinary cloud formation in the sunset, and continued on to Missouri. Nebraska is rich, hilly farmland. Missouri is lush, green, rolling hills.
