We enjoy traveling the back roads, never knowing where we will end up. One we found in the Black Hills was more crooked than the others with hairpin, circle, and pig tail turns — it was fun! We have been out in this area many times throughout the years and it had always been dry with brown grass but this year there had been lots of rain and everything was beautiful and green. I can’t believe the difference — unbelievable beauty everywhere that takes your breath away. I love Wyoming!

Barb Tillett and her husband enjoy exploring the back roads of America and have traveled extensively including Alaska, winter snowmobiling in Yellowstone National Park, Mississippi, Florida, and just about every state in the U.S. but especially the Eastern Seaboard. One of her great joys in life is sitting on an ocean beach reading a book. Barb and her husband live in Augusta County, Virginia.

Snowstorms are possible any month of the year and the road is passable only from May into September.
