Except for seasons (Winter: mid-Sept through May, Spring: June, Summer:July and Fall: August through the first week in September) there are many things to love about Wyoming. For instance they have great slogans:
Wyoming – Social Distancing Since 1890
Also they normally have loads of Rodeos and Summer Festivals. This year Laramie celebrated the once ever event called “7.2.20” on July 2, 2020 – the only date which matches the elevation here 7220′. At least that is what I heard the party celebrated. The gang and I were too tired to go. Turns out breathing at 7,220′ (with or without a mask) is all the exertion I can take.
Some Possibly Mangled Wyoming History
During a recent weekend trip, the five of us ascend to Snowy Range Pass hoping to view wildlife in this scenic habitat. Unfortunately the only animals we see feeding are on the river in town. Our second outing for the week takes us to the state capitol of Cheyenne. I will share with you my half remembered, mangled version of Wyoming State’s history from this trip. For the exact details, please research any other web page but this one.
If I remember correctly from our visit to the Wyoming State Museum, while Wyoming was still a territory women here obtained the right to vote. Before Wyoming became a state, they insisted that the US accept Wyoming women as voters. At that time, women who lived in the US did not have the right to vote. Hurray to Wyoming! This state not only led the way for women to vote, but also swore in the first female Governor of a US State.
In addition to our visit to the Wyoming State Museum, on the advice of a guest to the prison we took the self-guided tour through the newly renovated Capitol Building. The building is now restored to it’s original glory undoing some unsightly renovations from the 1970s. My only concern while inside is the low railing around the 3 story staircases. I stay alert and ensure I know where I am walking lest I hit one of the rails below my knees and sail over to my demise.
