Michaela and I spent the last night of our road trip in Green River, a town like many in Wyoming that came to be because of the railroad. The following morning we found the view we were looking for by the Mining Memorial Park. Like Thomas Moran didn’t include any of the surrounding civilization or the railroad in his painting, Green River Cliffs, I purposely didn’t either in this snapshot.

Our next stop was to seek out another hub of transportation, the Greater Green River Intergalactic Spaceport south of town. The sign is gone, and I wonder who took it, earthlings or aliens? Since the sign is gone, will extraterrestrials know where to land?
