Another Wyoming mural to liven your Tuesday. Recognize anyone? (And no, I’m not in it.) 🙂

Art about the town isn’t just the perquisite big cities. It’s popping out everywhere including Sheridan, Wyoming, one of Wyoming’s largest cities at under 20,000. When our younger daughter and I went to town one day, she asked to walk past the mural across from the library. Here are a couple shots from that, starting with her doing something I couldn’t do, even if I weren’t taking a photo.

On a day in town, we visited a number of shops, ate a delicious lunch while discovering several new beers, and found time for photos of some downtown Sheridan doors. If you have to be off the mountain, this is a good place to be.

While we were strolling the streets of Sheridan, we came upon an antique store and went in. Although we ended up buying some western belts, I also found some doors that you door-meisters might appreciate. This fabulous stove had a wonderful door…as well as a hefty price tag.

As I mentioned last week, I didn’t get many doors while in Sheridan, but here’s another one I like, part of that lovely building I highlighted last Thursday.  Shoot!  I forgot Norm was taking off this week.  But the post’s already out there, so I’ll stick with it.

When the Queen of England visited Sheridan in 1984, one two places she visited was King’s Saddlery.  King’s a Sheridan institution and a complete western store, for working cowboys, horse people of all sorts, and even tourists.  I doubt this guy came from Wyoming, though, and it would be really tough to get a saddle on him.

Besides all the Western wear, working gear, cabin furnishings, and more, there’s a museum with western art and a wonderful museum crammed with all sorts of fascinating items. This post shows a great variety of what’s there, although there’s a sign asking that you don’t take photos.  🙂  My parents donated a set of bull blinders from my father’s family farm.

Thursday is a day off for the horses, meaning they get to stay out in the pasture all Wednesday night, Thursday day, and  Thursday night.  I’m not sure if they have a union that negotiated this or not, but that’s how it is, although it can be changed to another day if circumstances, such as the Sheridan WYO Rodeo weekend, intervene.  They’re so used to the routine of being brought in, that Thursday morning often finds many of them grazing near the gate.  When no one arrives to get them, they gradually drift away to green(er) pastures.  This year, the grass on either side of the fence is green.

I don’t often go into town, even though Sheridan, Wyoming’s seventh largest city with about 17,000 people, is a great little place.  I love it at the cabin even when I’m not riding. But Thursday is the day to go and as our future son-in-law and his parents had never been there, we headed down the mountain.  After a stop to drop off garbage and recycling, coffee was next on the agenda and our stop was at a lovely shop I discovered last year, Andi’s.  Free wi-fi, a great place to relax on a very hot morning, and an iced mocha for me all hit the spot.
