Wyoming

Big Sky Country

I am very fond of Wyoming, it still has a lot of the "old west" flavor I grew up with.

It is also a very beautiful State, where the prairie meets the mountains.



The people are friendly and there is a great deal of history to be found.




I really love seeing the snow covered mountains in the distance.

One of the real pleasures to be found in this part of the country is the food.




If you know where to look you can find small restaurants like this one. They are most likely a bit off the beaten track, but worth taking the time to find. They cater mostly to ranch hands and such. You can count on huge, high calorie, home cooked meals at reasonable prices. The kind of fare needed to fuel a person through a hard day's work.

The rumor that folks here keep the best beef for themselves is true. More importantly though, most of these places serve buffalo meat. There is nothing better, though eland does come close.

I bedded down for the night at Laramie, once a famous cattle town, now a college town.

In the morning I was greeted by this sight from the motel parking lot.
