Into The West (Wyoming): Day 5

6:10pm: Tuesday, May 17
My first professional gym experience. 3 hours.
Taking another scenic route. I hear rumors of a trip to Yellowstone tomorrow evening. Now, if I can get this chlorine smell out of me. (Water pipe burst in the gym)

We're taking every opportunity to get some shots before the sun goes down. Sometimes the best film are your head and your heart. I want to remember all that I see for the rest of my life. Currently at Alpine Juncture within a mile from Idaho. Somebody got carried away. I don't care. I can stare out the window all day (preferably with earplugs. Long story)
