Travel Predictions High This Week

aaa

It should be a busy year for Independence Day holiday travel in the Rocky Mountain States.  That’s according to AAA Auto Club who predicts approximately 3.1 million residents of the eight-state Mountain Region will travel 50 miles or more during the July Fourth holiday.  That’s a 4.8 percent increase over 2011.  The Mountain Region includes eight states: New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Utah and Wyoming. AAA says the holiday week runs from today through Sunday, July 8th because the holiday falls on a Wednesday, and many people intend to take off work before and after July 4th.  Of those 3.1 million travelers, 2.4 million intend to get to their destinations by driving.  Meanwhile, the Wyoming Department of Transportation says construction on Togwotee Pass will be suspended at 4:00 pm today and not resume until Monday morning.

But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]

    U.S. Senator Mike Enzi opened his official campaign headquarters in Cheyenne on Wednesday. Wyoming’s senior senator is seeking his fourth term in the Senate.

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
