We celebrated David's birthday by driving all the way across Wyoming, stopping to see all the sights along the way. Surprisingly, there aren't all that many sights to see along I-80 as you power your way across southern Wyoming. Rock formations and antelope were the most interesting attractions.
The occasional billboard attracted frenzied interest. It wasn't that we thought we were going to learn anything useful about what was ahead. But at least it was a conversation starter. We managed to extract some meaningless, inane banter out of the road signs, and somehow that kept us entertained.
Our most successful stop was at the Wyoming Territorial Prison in Laramie. It's a historic site with a frontier town and the U.S. Marshals' Museum, which we found interesting. We took the guided tour of the old prison, which once housed Butch Cassidy. The tour guide told stories about the prisoners, and she locked some volunteers in one of the tiny cells. Most of them were amused, but one wild-eyed woman was semi-panicked by the experience.
