We started in Green River, and it didn't take long until we were treated to some stunning vistas of distant mountains and, of course, lonely Pilot Butte — that's Nicki on the car roof photographing the striking butte. Not long after, we spotted some wild horses! Well, sort of. They were on a ridge in the distance, but unfortunately too far away to snap a photo. We tried to get closer, but they ran off and we didn't see them again. Still, it was exciting, and it really hit home how truly untouched Wyoming is. We got out of the car at one point and walked a hundred yards or so down a trail. When we looked back, we couldn't believe how tiny and out of place our car looked in the vastness.
Next time, I hope to see some wild horses up close, but the drive was still well worth the trip!
