Wednesday in Wyoming -- September 12, 2012
Do you know what this is? I wouldn't be surprised if your first guess was not "a sod wall," since it doesn't look like the walls I associate with pioneers' sod houses. But this is indeed a sod wall, even though it looks a lot like a face. The reason it has such a whimsical shape is that it's part of the Children's Village at the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens. Here's a back view, so you can see how it was constructed.
The Botanic Gardens are one of my favorite places in Cheyenne and a "must see" location for our visitors, in part because of creativity like this. As I tell everyone, the Children's Village isn't just for kids.
