Road Trip Continues

Denver to Portland

Somewhere in Wyoming I ran across the above photo. At first sight I thought maybe we were being invaded by giant Buffalo. On the approach, there was sign after sign advertising 'Buffalo Burgers'. I've had buffalo (can't remember where right now), and it was pretty good. A lot like very lean hamburger. Crises adverted on the giant buffalo invasion as I got closer, I could see that it was simply a billboard!

I had recalled reading somewhere that there was a giant Boot statue in Cheyenne, WY and I decided to check it out. After feeding the Explorer (she seems to have an insatiable appetite), I headed into the old downtown of Cheyenne, following some vauge directions given at the gas station.

On my approach to downtown, I came upon the Depot Station where the following pictures were taken. The boots were a little disappointing. I really expected something the size of the Louisville Slugger bat in Louisville, KY. It was interesting non-the-less.

I was actually more impressed by the horse below made of scrap metal. Aco enjoyed the short break and spent her time sniffing at everything.

I loved the 'COWBOY' billboard I caught sight of on my way out of Cheyenne.

Somewhere outside of Cheyenne I snapped the pic of Lincoln Below. I'm not sure why it's here and didn't feel like making another stop to find out but if anyone has any information on this, let me know.

As the drive continued, the sun began to set. It was one of several fabulous sunsets that I have had during this trip.

Aco might be in need of a restraint! I don't know what was up with her today but she kept trying to get over in my lap! Several times during the trip, my elbow made it to her side. You would have thought she would have gotten the hint after the first time. She is being very clingy/needy today. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day for her.

I'm exhausted tonight. Didn't sleep well last night. I'm going to go crawl into the covers now.....gnite.
