[Possibly better when viewed in Lightbox]

I seem to attract bad weather when I am driving out west. Maybe that is why no one will travel with me.

I got up in Cody, Wyoming, yesterday morning, and it was about 20 degrees and spitting snow. I gingerly crept out of town intent on driving to Yellowstone's Northeast entrance.

That meant crossing the Bighorn Mountains on the Chief Joseph Scenic Highway. Oh, it was scenic alright.

It took four hours to cover 60 miles. It was lightly snowing, but it was also foggy. I have never seen fog at this elevation (about 6,000 feet). At first, I didn't even know what it was.

When I took this picture, I had already reached the top of the mountain range, but now I had to descend into the whiteness you see here. This required 4-WD, fog lamps, eyes on the road, and the avoidance of animals, especially cattle that were roaming what is free range.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

    I would get claustrophobia to see that much fog and snow obscuring the windshield and it looks like a dangerous situation! ...I hope your older daughter and her husband made the trip safely to meet you at Yellowstone!.
