Twin pylons deliver electricity across the high plains of Southeast Wyoming (from June 1998)

Fences mark the boundary between ranches. This is a picture of vast nothingest (actually I think it's a valley), south of Interstate 80, east of Cheyenne (toward Denver). Can you find a similar place in the Eastern U.S.? (from June 1998)

Original LH approaching I-80/US 30 between Burns and Cheyenne. First example of the Lincoln Highway unpaved I encountered along the way. (from August 2001)

Old US 30 east of Cheyenne -- Although US 30 has been rerouted onto I-80 in this area, this US 30 street sign remains on the former route. (from August 2001)

North end of I-180 at US 30 in Cheyenne (see Andy's I-180 page for significance) (from August 2001)

While this photo has nothing to do with the Lincoln Highway, I had to find a home for it. From Steve Mannix, this photo shows Wyoming DOT altering the exit numbering for I-25 @ I-80 outside of Cheyenne. Hopefully this was temporary due to construction on the interchange. Still, why the jump from B to D? What happened to A or C? (from 2002)

Gawdy Hills along the LH corridor (from August 2001)

Tree Rock
A Tree that is growing out of a rock! Once upon a time it was along the side of the Lincoln Highway, now it's in the median of I-80!
Located between Cheyenne and Laramie. (all photos from August 2001)
