When the wind is blowing harder than normal even for Wyoming, i take US 85 North of Cheyenne instead of I-25. You get one more ridge of protection on the west side as a slight windbreak on that route.

Hi everyone,

We’re taking I-25 north to Orin, then East on hwy 18 thru Lusk and Edgemont.
Then onto 89 and 385 north thru Hill City.

I would appreciate any info those highway conditions. Google maps looks pretty good, but some personal info always helps.

Thanks to all,
Bill


We did that route last June. Heavy construction south of Denver, but we moved right along. Denver itself is never fun, but manageable. Yes, hwy 18 to Lusk can feel long and lonely at times, with very little traffic. We thought it was beautiful and interesting countryside, just the same. I highly recommend stopping overnight in Lusk at BJ's campground. Linda, the owner, is a very entertaining host. And there is a really interesting museum in Lusk. Lots of local history.
