On to Sheridan, Wyoming
When the eclipse was over the thousands camped in the fields below our RV park totally jammed up the highways. We could see I-35 from our camp site and traffic barely moved for several hours…These cars on the road below were trying to get on the Interstate….
We were happy to wait until Tuesday morning to head for our next campsite in Sheridan, WY…..Peter D’s RV Park, a very nice campground with super friendly owners, Peter and Barb. She has a vegetable garden and we have had zucchini and squash.
This morning we asked Peter where to go for breakfast….he said he and Barb had just come from the Cowboy Cafe….then proceeded to tell us everywhere else to go in Sheridan….we followed his directions, starting with the Cowboy Cafe…
Some very unusual breakfast items on the menu and we both got the Spicy Vegetarian Skillet….two eggs over a blend of veggies and potatoes covered with hot salsa….
I could hardly finish it, so much and really hot!
Next stop, a walk around the grounds of this state historic site called Trail End. The house was built in 1913 by John Kendrick who became Governor of Wyoming and later served two terms as a US Senator…
The most unique store I have ever been in and apparently very famous, King’s Saddlery. It is a complete western tack store. We saw dozens of saddles, price tags of $3000 and up, western hats….everything a rancher/cowboy could dream of.
In back of the retail store is a museum established by Don King the founder….here is Gene Autry’s silver saddle..
A National Historic Landmark here is the Sheridan Inn. Here, the famous showman and cowboy “Buffalo Bill” Cody lived for 8 years from 1894 until 1902 and he auditioned acts for his famous “Wild West” show in the front yard of this great old hotel…..now completely restored.
Tomorrow we drive to Pine Creek Campground south of Livingston, Montana. Its in the Gallatin National Forest adjacent to the Luccock Park Camp where there will be an outdoor wedding on Saturday. A young couple who attended our daughter’s wedding in May invited us ….our daughter and her husband flew in to Bozeman from Charleston today and have rented a camper for the event….we are really looking forward to this event….and we are dry camping (otherwise known as “boondocking”) ….This will be the first time for us to try out the generator….
We’ll be there thru Sunday so until Monday or Tuesday for the next blog
……..but stay tuned
