When in Casper, order Chinese food
...unless you actually like Chinese food. In which case, you might go for Mexican or steaks or something. Oh well, at least it wasn't Burger King again. Greetings from Casper, Wyoming, where everything has a silouette of a cowboy on it, and Ming House on historic 2nd Street plays country music to accompany your dinner. The drive today was SPECTACULAR, and not nearly as long as yesterday's run. We are going to have to do some remedial geology study when we get back. There were just SO many different land formations and types of rock in the road cuts between Salt Lake City and Casper that none of us, not even Mr. Encyclopedia, Calvin, could identify. We also stopped at one of those "wildlife viewing areas" where the wildlife actually obliged. After taking a posed shot in front of a sign titled "Wyoming Wildlife", we then spotted a Pronghorn antelope mother and baby (awwwww...). Unfortunately, the camera battery died, so you'll just have to believe me on that one. We've been in phone contact with Andre, when cell-service permits, and he informs us that our dog, Cricket, spent ALL of yesterday perched on a bench in front of the living room window, waiting for the rest of her pack to return. I think we may have to set up a doggy-skype for her and the kids.
