I landed in Billings, MT. last night. Dark and cold.
The drive through Wyoming was desolate. That is one EMPTY state. But the landscape was amazing. From almost alien to wide open and desolate to rocky mountain beauty. This is the first time I've gone past Cheyenne (to the North) and it's all true: It's the backdrop of an old Hollywood western, for hour after hour at 75mph. The beauty (and sense of being alone) is extreme and, in many places, the wind never stops (I've read Wyoming has one of the highest per capita suicide rates in the nation, largely due to the non stop wind). I can see why some of the most rugged and self sufficient folks might want to choose Wyoming as home. If you live here, and you want to be, you're very much alone.
Today: Not sure if I'll head North, again, or swing West. Not feeling the draw to the East today. I may seek out local hackerspaces as I go. We'll see.
