So when I took this picture last week… I did it because, here I was, in my baby Jeep Cherokee, cruising over snow covered dirt roads, listening not to some great songs… but Ken Follett’s Winter of the World. It’s a BIG book and I needed serious listening time!
I had retrieved Eden from Shoshoni and hopefully, her VERY ROMANTIC date with Tank… but as I left the pavement, the sun was setting. No big deal. Now, I sure wouldn’t recommend this road to anyone who hasn’t taken it before. It can be VERY CONFUSING which turns to take until you’ve been across a few times… but me and this road are good friends. I knew as long as I didn’t do something entirely stupid… I’d be fine.
When I drove over the pass and down across the wide open prairie, I stopped my car. No visible lights ANYWHERE. Nada. Not one. Nope.
Stars, yes. A zillion trillion stars. No moon.
Just me, my book, my dog, and two little headlights piercing the blackness, leading us home.
What do you think? Would you do this??? Or am I just used to Wyoming back roads?
