Today we planned for a long 130km downhill ride to Lander. We made our first stop at Split Rock which was a historic trail sign for the first half million settlers moving west over the Rockies going to Utah (Mormons), California or Oregon (Gold Rush). However, after riding for another hour with strong headwind and the recent experience of very few shelter places in Wyoming, we decided to stay in Jeffrey City at 11:00 after only 40km and take the rest of the day off. We stayed in a Church (only for TransAm Bicyclists) at Jeffrey City which has only 50 inhabitants left after the Uranium mine was closed in 1981.
