After a previous road stop where I was served “corporate soup” my wife and I had traveled another 400 odd miles, stopping in the little town of Green River, Wyoming, about which you should know two things.
First, this little town has one of the finest authentic, south-of-the-border restaurants we have ever visited, Mi Casita in downtown Green River. The lamb tacos were so unusually fine (the pictures do this little justice), we ordered a second plate to share. These people really know how to cook, and they serve wonderfully cold beer.
Second thing is about the drive south from Green River to Flaming Gorge Dam. Probably the most spectacular geologic high plains drive in the western United States. We have done it three times and will return again . . . and for more tacos.
