From Rock Springs to Laramie and Cheyenne, then to Nebraska state.  It was raining near Laramie!!! It's our first rain in last four months! In fact, it was pouring like cats and dogs! And on top of that we had a thunderstorm with lightning! We were wondering whether it's safe to drive through the storm, but somehow we made it!

Talking about safe, we also had an encounter with deers.. A mommy dear with two fawns wanted to cross the freeway and did not care about the cars! Here you have the wild animals who should be terrified about humans and their machines, and yet the inconsiderate doe decided to cross the freeway right in front of our car! One of the fawns follower her, and before the second one stepped on the road, we were able to slalom between them. Lucky us! That was scary... A day full of adventures, as you can see...

Today was the logest drive so far. We made 682 miles, that is 1091 km. Rock Springs, Wyoming to Omaha, Nebraska. The gas is cheap here, $4.09 comparing to $4.50 in Bay Area. As further we go, as cheaper it gets.  In the beginning of Nebraska time zone changes to Central Time. We are now two hours ahead of California.

It's dry again. Hot, sandy, rocky, and dry...

No cowboys so far...


Instead there are Walmarts everywhere!
As in Utah all the biggest buildings were Mormon churches, in Wyoming and Nebraska all the humongous structures are Walmarts, with dozens of trucks parked in front of them...



We got to a hotel at 1:30 am. Going to sleep and tomorrow we will take a short tour through Omaha!

PS: Nazar says that ostriches fly to Ukraine for summer and then go somewhere warmer for winter...   Good night!
