"At Least It's There!" Chugwater by johngayton

Gas, Lunch and Restrooms

I was quite surprised to find Chugwater with a listing here on VT, given that all it seems to be is a Super8 Motel with a Diner attached and a gas station. Perhaps I missed something?

Having said that, it was certainly a more than welcome find as a break from the visual monotony of the Interstate 25 going North through Eastern Wyoming, roughly half-way between Cheyenne and Wheatland.

As with crossing The Sahara (I presume seeing as that is something I haven't done) any oasis is a good oasis and such is the case here. In fact I'm so grateful of this little find I am going to tip it twice.

    There is a museum here too! And the oldest soda fountain in the state.
