After most of our errands, our minds turned to lunch at Smith Alley Brewing Company where we’d had good beer and food a few years ago. We were happy to see they’d survived Covid. As we sat outside, I was excited to see the vertical growing platforms used to divide the eating area from the walkway of the alley with a variety of fruit, vegetables, and flowers growing on the five what? Trellises? Re-reading the information below, I see they’re called walls.

In the water at the bottom of each wall are fish. Our server informed us that the fertilizer provided by the fish is then taken by the water to each part of the wall. No fishing, of course, and any fish served here do NOT come from these!

I don’t want to forget to mention that Smith Alley has great beer (I had Black Pegasus, robust with heavy notes of coffee and chocolate.) What’s not to like?? The fries were hand cut, the French dip delicious. My husband once again had a peculiarly Wyoming dish: chili with a cinnamon roll meant to be dipped or put into the chili. We were told last time that this was served in school cafeterias. My husband loved it, although I personally would never do that to a cinnamon roll. It was the perfect way and place to relax and rejuvenate before finishing our errands and heading back up the mountain. The next day we’d be closing up the cabin for another year.

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.
