Wednesday in Wyoming -- September 19, 2018

A teepee in the middle of Cheyenne? Although it's not a permanent part of the State Museum's front yard, this one was erected for Frontier Days to give visitors something interesting to see when they drove by and to encourage them to visit the museum.

I know I probably sound as if I work for the tourism bureau. I don't, but the State Museum is on the "must see" list for my out-of-town guests. From dinosaurs to sheep wagons to intriguing rotating exhibits, it's well worth a visit. And, if you come at the right time, you might even be able to go inside the teepee.

Wednesday in Wyoming -- September 12, 2018


Blame it on my eighth grade Earth Science class, but I've always been fascinated by rock formations.

I found these particularly interesting because you can see the different layers, some of which are at oblique angles. How were they formed, and why wasn't the rock next to those areas also angled? I wish I could say that I knew the answer, but I don't.

Do you?

Wednesday in Wyoming -- September 5, 2018

The last roses of summer? Perhaps, but that doesn't stop them from being beautiful or from perfuming the air with their sweet fragrance.

I've always enjoyed the rose garden at the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens, and it's even more impressive now that the Grand Conservatory forms the background.

Did you notice that the flag is hanging limp? That's SO unusual for Cheyenne.
