Storm Clouds over the Refinery in Sinclair Wyoming.

I left Salt Lake City, and continued my drive east on I-80. A lot of snow fell during the night, but the highway was open. It must have been bad the previous night since there were several tractor trailers off the road. Once I got into Wyoming, the highway got better. I took this image of a refinery while driving through Sinclair. Interesting historical note, this route is also known as the Lincoln Highway, which was the first transcontinental automobile road that went all the way across the United States. I used to live near New Jersey Route 27, which was also part of the Lincoln Highway in Edison New Jersey.
