Greetings from The Cowboy State

Wyoming claims two labels ... 'The Cowboy State' being the better known of the two. The other label may come as a surprise ...we are also 'The Equality State' since Wyoming was the first state to grant women the vote. My family homesteaded here, having come west from Vermont soon after the Civil War. They ranched and raised horses for the U.S. Remount. I'm 4 generations deep in Wyoming soil. Wyoming is a place of extreme beauty, contrasting geography and extreme weather and not a place most people want to live. Cattle still outnumber humans here and that suits me to a T.

Shery, Thank you for sharing your heart and life with us! Your hospitality and love for your homeland come thru so well---it's like sharing over coffee and a hot cinnamon roll. I look forward to my visits.

Hi Sherry, love your blog. As someone who lived in Wyo for 18 years and who has many relatives that still live there(alive and dead)I really enjoy your pics. I greww up on the high deserts of Nevada and Wyoming and even though I live in the beautiful Pacific NW, the high desert will always look like home.
