GETTING THERE

They have done a nice job fixing up the old depot area. Its a beautiful structure that is just south of downtown.

But these days most folks arrive here by car, not train. Cheyenne is at the intersection of Interstates 80 and 25. 80 takes you west to Laramie or east into Nebraska. 25 can take you south to Denver or north to Casper.

THE CAPITOL AREA

This is the handsome capitol building in Cheyenne. Cheyenne is one of the smaller state capitols, with a population around 53,000. So its easy to get around. Near the capitol building is a nice Wyoming museum, and downtown is an easy walk to the south.

LITTLE AMERICA

Little America is a sprawling complex that cannot be captured by a photo unless from an airplane. There is a motel, restaurant, gift shop, gasoline station, golf course, and probably more.

Its located at the west end of town, just west of Interstate 25. Take highway 30 through town (Its also called the interstate 80 business route) until you see the big sign proclaiming Little America. Its an interesting stop, and the food is pretty good too.

    There was a period there that VT was a little glitchy. Anyway--forgot to mention last time--I really enjoyed reading this! Cheers, Ed.

    I didn't realize these fiberglass figures were a fad. But now that I think of it, cows all over Antwerp painted nice colors. Nice job here.
