The drive across Utah and Wyoming was beautiful. Both of these states are full of mountains and rolling hills. Utah is very lush and green through the mountains, whereas Wyoming is still rolling hills, but dry and colorful rock. I've driven most of Wyoming before, but had never been in the far southwest area. We passed the Flaming Gorge, which is amazing. I visited there a few years ago, and the colors in the gorge are just unbelievable.

From there we headed to The Library, which across the street from the campus of the University of Wyoming. It was a sports bar themed like a library, giant tv's everywhere and tons of sports on. We grabbed a couple more beers and had a filling dinner. There wasn't a lot going on, especially since it was a week night and school isn't in session, but this is probably a really popular place during the school year!
On the way back to the hotel, we took a drive through the campus, which was really nice and then headed back. We hung out at the hotel for the rest of the night, had a couple drinks, read...relaxed and went to sleep. Not overly exciting...but we'd had a long couple of weeks and we had a 15 hour drive the next day.
