Storm Clouds & Phantom Canyon Road

Around lunch time today we arrived in Westcliff Colorado. There is an amish settlement there. An absolutely beautiful valley.

 
         

Today we drove quite a few back roads in Colorado an of course had to take Phantom Canyon Road. Just as we got on the road it started looking really stormy. We went anyhow an it was beautiful as always but cloudy an close to the end of the 30 mile stretch, drizzly.

Dirt Roads an Lupines in Wyoming

So today we were merrily driving down the road an pulled off for the exit to go over the Big Horn mountains heading for Yellowstone when steam started billowing out from the hood. So we pulled over an decided that it was a burst something. We thought of trying to head the 12 miles back to Sheridan but a WYDOT guy told us to head to Ranchester bout half a mile down the road. Thank God because we barely made it there. The guys weighed their options an found a small mechanic shop. Lo an behold he found the problem an 3 hrs later we were on our merry way counting our blessings. An hour earlier we would have been on the highway. An hour later half way through the mountains. Our God is an awesome God! 

We oohed an aahed our way through the mountains. Pulled into a little side rd to take pics when grandpa got a notion to just take the rd;)
It was dusty an bumpy. We didn't even see elk.. But oh the views. The flowers! The snow;)






We are staying in Cody Wyoming tonight heading for Yellowstone tomorrow morning. We were going to spend the evening there but of course got short on time. We had wanted to spend a couple days there but doesn't look like we will. Hotels are a problem.
