Got look real close for some white spots and you will see antelope. If you click on the picture, a larger view will come up and you can definitely see antelope. Couldn't get any closer than this to them and the telephoto lens on my camera isn't all that good. But I tried. Took this picture outside of Laramie to the west on our way home. This was the second day on the trip home from Hooker. After staying 4 nights at Hooker and spoiling grandson, we went over to Boise City to spend a few days there to visit with friends. And to see what the weather would be like on the trip home. When we left Boise City, a storm was moving in, so we traveled on the leading edge of that storm, slipped in between that one and one that was leaving the eastern plains of Colorado. By the time we got to Cheyenne, the storms had passed us by. But west of Cheyenne, the roads turned to solid ice in most spots with some snow on top of them. I drove very slowly on those roads. About 5 miles outside of Laramie, the roads cleared up completely. We spent the night in Laramie. The temperature got down to -6, is that is 6 below. The water in the motorhome froze up real good, so we had no water. There was some water jugs in the Jeep that had water in them, so thawed them out to use. And ate breakfast at the truckstop. By late morning the water lines had thawed out, so that we had water. This was on Saturday and that afternoon, we pulled into home. Unloaded most everything out of the motorhome and did some resting for the rest of the day and Sunday. I am now back in the swing of things.
