It took me way too long into our trip to decide that I wanted to document part of it by taking photos of all the Motels along the way. Why? Because their signs are awesome, and there are tons of them. Unfortunately, I didn’t commit myself to this until we got to Wyoming. So, next time I do this, I’m going to do nothing but take photos of Motel signs. For now, here’s some of what I’ve got:

Keep in mind that most of these were taken while riding by, so if the exposure’s all off and it looks blurry, it’s because I’m not trying to stop while taking photos.

The Fontenelle Store

The Fontenelle Store

The Fontenelle Store, deceptively, was open for business. The guy inside pointed us in the direction of the campsite we stayed in two nights ago, and told us that the dirt road running out of it would shave 8-12 miles from our trip the next day. And it did…but it sure wasn’t paved…costing us just as much time as those extra 8-12 miles would’ve taken. On the plus side, our bikes didn’t fall apart.
