While in Cheyenne, the WINs are staying on a lot behind the VFW. It's a lovely spot, with a noisy, smelly refinery nearby. As an added bonus, between us and the refinery is a busy double-track railroad track.
All over town are 8' tall painted boots. This one is different in that it's a mosaic.
The Union Pacific and BNSF railroads intersect in Cheyenne, creating a gigantic railyard. The Railroad Depot here was built in 1886.
The railyard contains some unique items.
Some of them are rusty.
New this year in the front of the depot is this horse made out of all kinds of rusty metal pieces.
And here in the Depot Plaza is where the famous free Pancake Breakfast is done several times during Frontier Days.
The long line moves very quickly, about as fast as you can walk. They feed 100 people per minute, and over 10,000 people each morning.
And how can they make all these pancakes?
Many large grills are used, and when they are done, the pancakes are flipped over the cook's shoulder to be caught by Boy Scouts on trays. As you can see in the video, they catch most of them...
