The eastern part of Wyoming is generally pretty flat and desolate,
bigger mountains in the distance, especially to the south (in Colorado)
and it is high up at the Nebraska state line. Pine Bluff is a nice
area. Wyoming is a very sparsely populated state, and you won't find
hour here. It makes Nevada look crowded sometimes. Gas and motels tend
to be very cheap in Wyoming. This is from Kevin Weed in 1990 just
past Pine Bluffs. This is in Laramie county.
I80 is about to enter the mountains west of Laramie.
This is where I80 goes over a summit at 8640', in the middle of the Medicine Bow National Forest.
Headed west you will be in high country for a long way, headed east you're headed into much lower country. It feels like you're going over a major change when you go over this pass. This is one of the most beautiful passes on I80.
Here I80 is overlooking Laramie from a distance. Note the snow capped mountains also in the distance.
The section west of Laramie reminds me of the Battle Mountain stretch of I80 westbound in Nevada. The city of Laramie is in Albany county.
