Rock Springs, Wy to Craig, Co
« on: June 27, 2010, 10:33:11 pm »
I'm on a cross-country trip from Bozeman, Mt to Washington, DC and I was hoping someone could give me some information on south of Rock Springs.  Particularly highway 430 to 318 between Wyoming and northern Colorado and whether they are paved or not.  We are currently in Jackson, Wyoming, heading to Pinedale tomorrow (6/28) and down to Rock Springs after that.  Any insight into how to get from Pinedale to Steamboat Springs would be great!

Ask around town for John Godfrey (a/k/a Santa Claus).  I am almost certain he lives in Pinedale.  Tell him that a fellow railroader and one-time participant in one of his training sessions referred you for info.  No guarantees, but it's worth a short.

south of rock springs is very scenic.
 esp if you head down and around Flaming Gorge Reservoir.

I lived there for 6 months on a travel nurse assignment and found myself heading south of Rock Springs and into Utah/Colorado towards town of Dinosaur most times than not.

If time allows you should check out the Geologic Loop that branches off the southern part of the Flaming Gorge Loop.

Hopefull you all headed in that direction, seeing I think I'm posting too late.
