As I mentioned in the last post, Sheridan is an old cowboy town. I was surprised that this store is really a JC Penney store.
One more of the many statues in town.
We had a tour of King's Ropes in town. They make ropes of any weight, color, or material. Even pink ones!
Here our guide is demonstrating how they twist the rope.
It's also the home of Kings Saddlery, in case you are in the market for an expensive saddle.
Another day, we went on a beautiful hike up the Tongue River Canyon. Once again, as soon as I stop to take a picture, I'm way behind. But that was okay - they have to come back this way.
Oh look - one of my favorite flowers, a Salsify. (Oh no, now I'm ever further behind...)
The Salsify is also photogenic in seed - it looks like a really big dandelion seed.
We had been warned that the trail was the place for the start of the Bighorn Trail 100 Mile Endurance Run. On our return trip, we spotted them coming up the trail.
I stepped off the trail and just took pictures. There were at least a hundred runners. This cute guy actually smiled at me! Since this was the start of the run, everyone was pretty close together. The race takes 20 hours, and they run through the night. They go up and back, over two mountains.
Finally, they passed, and we continued back to our cars.
It was a gorgeous hike, with lots of wonderful rock formations along the way.
