2018 Road Trip – Day 24

Sunday, August 26

It was time to leave Laramie but I really, really didn’t want to go home. We left the kids at 8:30 AM and it was 54 degrees with some clouds. We got to Nebraska at 9:50 AM. I80 was under construction–still? again? It was one lane each way for a long while. We got to Iowa at 4:15 PM. The Missouri River there was full. We saw some eagles on trees in the area just east of the river. We had not seen any in that area since the big flood in 2011.

Arrived at the Drury Inn in Columbia, MO, at 8:05 PM. Because the KFC was closed for remodeling, Tommy went next door to Denny’s and got us salads. Obviously Denny’s is not the place for salads.

I got one good photo from the day. It was taken between Laramie and Cheyenne. Such a cool looking cloud (this picture was shot at 75 MPH).
