Rest areas and service plazas are rather important out here on the road. Aside from the obvious need for restroom facilities, they provide room to stretch our legs, toss the trash and sometimes grab a snack. Because of their importance, I decided to begin a series spotlighting some of the ones we visit as we travel the country.
Wyoming is where we were stuck all day yesterday due to high winds and blowing snow, so I figured I’d use a rest area from there.

We stopped at Wagonhound rest area a couple of weeks ago on the day they were expecting their first winter storm.

It was really tiny compared to rest areas I’ve seen in other states.

But, it was clean and had decent bathrooms.
The caretaker resides in a mobile home on the premises, which seems wise with the way the weather likes to change in the state.

Snow fences

Snow fences were strategically placed around the area to help prevent it from being buried by winter storms. Thankfully, the flurries that started falling while we were there didn’t amount to enough to need them.
Tiny though it was, I enjoyed looking around this Wyoming rest area.

Until next time, readers,
Drive safely šŸ™‚
