This town is full of it's own character, street performers downtown on Saturdays near the farmer's market, full blown works of art on the sides of...

  • Thick shrubbery punctuated by cowboys leading their herds to a watering hole comes to mind when one thinks of Wyoming. Indeed, upon my return, everyone smiled when they learned where we had been—and it wasn’t a smile that promised a floodgate set to burst with fond memories and shared...
