Wednesday in Wyoming - November 25, 2020


The last stop on the mini-tour of eastern Laramie County was Burns, another of the small towns that make this part of Wyoming so interesting. 

While there I saw someone doing a job I wouldn't want - climbing to the top of a water tower. Those men (there were two of them) are far braver than I.

Wednesday in Wyoming - November 18, 2020


Remember all the gas pumps in last week's post? There's more to Pine Bluffs than them, including this 30 feet high Our Lady of Peace statue. 

Located right next to the highway, the statue is one of the first things westbound travelers on Interstate 80 see when they cross into Wyoming. 

If you'd like more information, here's the link.

Wednesday in Wyoming - November 11, 2020


Here's something you don't see everywhere. Not only is the flying horse a reminder of a time long past, but where else could you find so many old gas pumps?

I chuckled when I reached the intersection and saw this scene in front of me. Where did I find it? Pine Bluffs, on the state line between Wyoming and Nebraska.

Wednesday in Wyoming - November 4, 2020


Welcome to Albin, one of the quintessential small towns in Wyoming. From the grain silos and bales of hay to the old-fashioned water tower this town of less than 200 is a picture of small-town life. There's even a port-a-potty behind the church.
