Wednesday in Wyoming -- June 19, 2013

Although the movie industry has been known to glorify outlaws, they were anything but glorious to the early residents of Wyoming.  Even when they were apprehended and incarcerated, some of the most notorious managed to escape.  That's why this exhibit is titled "Running From the Law." 

If you look closely, you'll see that an enterprising inmate has dug a hole in the left side of the jail cell.  Young visitors can enter the cell and climb into the hole, escaping to waiting horses on the other side.  All right.  They're not live horses, but still .... 

Where can you find this exhibit?  The answer is coming next week.
