|This cloud looked like Jesus to me so I was convinced we were going the right way.|
A left here and a right there, our GPS lead us to a residential street. Could the statue be visible from there? We drove on, even after our GPS told us to navigate off road for the next mile. It was at that moment we realized that our GPS was out to murder us as it directed us to drive off a cliff. Both terrified, we decided that the statue was not worth our lives so we turned the car around and proceeded into Nebraska. (Now you understand why we were just too scared to get out of the car there…we had nearly DIED moments earlier!)
Sweet victory came about an hour later on our drive back to Denver. We were stopping to take pictures at the ‘Welcome to Wyoming’ sign and there she was! Just as described – off the highway. Like, you literally CANNOT miss it as you cross the border into Wyoming on I-80.
Below are some written directions that I found online. Proceed with caution.
I-80 exit 1 in Nebraska. Drive north a quarter-mile to US 30, turn left (west), drive into Wyoming, and take the first left onto Statue Drive.
