when we were ready to leave wyoming this morning and were checking out of our hotel, another guest told us that I-80 westbound was shut down due to a vehicle fire. we were headed to oregon that way, so that was some shit news. a nice guest at the hotel printed off a detour and since we couldn’t afford to lose a bunch of time, we drove a long way on a dirt road to get back on the interstate. this is a picture of the road we had to take.
