We go through one of the formations via a tunnel.

Some of the clouds look a bit threatening, but we don't get any rain. We stopped for a break and took a walk to stretch - our legs.  We found lilacs blooming everywhere! About 35 miles out of Rawlins we see thunderstorms ahead. - Just after we got our motel room in Rawlins it poured for about a half hour. Tuesday, May 24 - East of Rawlins we get into the rolling cow - country of Wyoming.  Note all of the snow fences.
We saw lots of these Union Pacific trains as we passed through Cheyenne. The Wyoming-Nebraska state line Nebraska is definitely flat. The Great Platte River Road Archway Monument. -  Built across America's busiest east-west highway, it's a museum paying - tribute to the pioneers' westward journey and America's freedom of mobility.
Wednesday, May 25 - After spending the night near Grand Island, Nebraska, - we arrive in Omaha.  We drive through the city to check it out. Approaching Des Moines, Iowa
