This was an exceptionally interesting drive because the scenery changed so much. The trip started out through high plains and then mountains appeared in the distance.
After driving over the Powder River Pass at 9,600 feet.
Then, the road dropped down a very long grade through a couple of switchbacks through a narrow canyon with sharp cliffs on each side.
And then, the mountains were left behind, and I drove through this weird area of desert hills. It looks very different from the plains back 200 miles.
Eventually, the land got smoother, and it looked more like the plains.
Finally, I made it to Cody, and drove through the town to the reservoir and state park. Really beautiful place to camp!
