Gas fracking rig on the Overland Trail, Atlantic Rim north of Baggs, Wyoming.
Last summer I drove from Rifle, Colorado to Pinedale, Wyoming tracing the eastern edge of the Red Desert known as the Atlantic Rim. I was taken aback by the drilling density, then came upon a sign for the Overland Trail. For context, read the quote at the top of the sign in the picture below. A strange juxtaposition indeed.

As a followup to the previous post, I thought it would be pretty cool to share this image that’s on the back of the RMA bus. The USFWS does a great job of wrapping the vehicles used to transport visitors in wildlife imagery.
Wyoming Game and Fish and Wyoming Department of Transportation have done a great job with new signs alerting drivers to wildlife on the roads. I was traveling highway 28 near Seedskadee NWR when I spotted this sign for sage grouse. There are also pronghorn crossing signs along this route.
It’s on the left… I’m easily amused by signs and this was a fun one while traveling in western Wyoming for my Sage Spirit project. There really is a place called “Sage”. It’s between Diamondville and Cokeville – I hope that helps. 🙂
