We took a more-or-less aimless drive the other day, eventually ending up on a road just because the map indicated a cemetery along the way. As a bonus, that route pointed us right toward some afternoon storms that were building up. And then, as a double-bonus, just when we got to the cemetery one of the clouds, off in the distance, decided it was time to rain.

Sometimes when I make a photo I can almost talk myself into believing that no other photographer would have spotted The Thing I Just Photographed. And other times, I believe that Any Reasonable Person With a Camera would have made the exact image I just got.
This, obviously, falls into the Any Reasonable Person category. I mean, really – how could anyone look at that mountain, the sunlight on the white building, and those clouds and NOT produce exactly this image?
But I’m still glad I made it.

Normal travelers seeking a route between Cheyenne and Caspar would take Interstate 25, which would take about two and a half hours.
And that is the complete explanation of our route of choice, a desolate and meandering path that added roughly an hour to the drive. But we got to see this. (And we skipped the boring interstate.)
