A quick visit to Cheyenne, WY


As we work our way across country, we like to stop every once in a while and spend a little time at places we normally don’t.  This time, we spent an extra night in Cheyenne, WY.   We had dinner at T Joe’s, an out of the way hole in the wall we found on our last trip through.  Really good steaks and cold beer.

Since the weather was so nice today (high 75, low 42 and sunny) we drove through the city and stopped off at the Arboretum.  Actually, Cheyenne is a nice city, lots of nice parks and some typical old west architecture.  A great place to live, if you like cold — I mean REALLY cold — weather and snow.  But today was great, here are some pictures.
