Beatrice Turns 5 – Day 2

Sunday, April 15, 2018

We left the hotel at 8:10 AM. It was 26 degrees, windy and blowing snow.

We decided to ride through the Squaw Creek Wildlife Preserve which is just two miles off of I29 north of St. Joe. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much to see.

We stopped when we got off of I29 to get gas in Percival. When Tommy got back in the truck after filling up he said he thought with wind chill it felt like 2 degrees. Sure enough, it was.

Since we were driving straight to Laramie, we did not get off of the interstate. However, as traffic was slowed/stopped due to construction on I80 we did see thousands of sandhill cranes taking a break from their migration north. Pretty impressive sight!

We got to Laramie at 7:10 PM.
