"Don't forget your umbrella!" Cheyenne Packing List Tip by horsinround2

Cheyenne What to Pack: 1 reviews and 0 photos

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Don't forget your umbrella and a pair of waterproof shoes! This is the first time I have seen water fall from the sky in sheets (they called it rain - looked more like a spontaneous waterfall to me!) We found out (after we arrived - of course) that July is Cheyenne's rainy season. Every afternoon the skys open up and drench anyone dumb enough to be outside. In a matter of minutes the streets look like rivers and you won't be going anywhere for a good 45 minutes. Then the rain magically dissappears, the sun comes out, and life goes on like nothing ever happened.

It's not very cold, so a lightweight (preferably waterproof) jacket will do. I'm from California and was often wearing t-shirts at 2am without being cold.

During Frontier Days dress code is casual. Wranglers & cowboy boots work just fine.

Photo Equipment: Bring a camera - you can get x-tra film at Wal-Mart. You'll definately want pictures of the beautiful Native American costumes!

Miscellaneous: If you get ear infections from wind... bring earplugs or cotton balls. Cheyenne is very windy!
