4 days before we were to leave on our annual backpacking trip through southern Colorado, we had a conversation about a friend of our's who had the opportunity to move to Bozeman, MT. "Bozeman seems great." Voodoo Biker said.
"Yeah, there's biking, hiking, 2 ski resorts...it's beautiful up there!" I said while banging around in the kitchen cooking dinner. "I wonder how long it takes to get to Bozeman?"
Voodoo Biker googled something and came up with 8 hours. Turns out it's about twice that, but that doesn't matter now. At the time we decided, "let's go!" Voodoo Biker got out the road atlas and started checking out blue highways between here and there. Here was our route, start to finish:
|The first 2 days we drove (leaving Friday afternoon) from here to Craig, CO and then to Cody, WY the next day.|
|From Cody we drove over Beartooth Pass to Red Lodge, MT and then to Bozeman. After that we headed to Yellowstone for a few days. We left Yellowstone and spent 2 days in and around Jackson Lake and Jackson, WY.|
|We left Jackson and drove south over the Flaming Gorge Reservoir, through Vernal, UT and home.|
