The next door ranch was sold a few years ago and now all the buildings stand empty, our association has the right to ride through. Just remember that a gate that’s closed should be closed after you go through and if it was open, leave it open. The horses tend to be on high alert whenever riding through and if ever a gate blew open or something popped out from behind a building, you’d better hope you’re holding on or you’ll be walking.

This first door is a door for horses or animals, but we don’t discriminate at Thursday Doors! (Don’t want to get sued.)

I could have gotten a better angle on this door but I was on horseback, so I took what I could get.

Not far from our cabin in Wyoming is Spear-O-Wigwam, listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Begun in 1923 as a dude ranch (a place for people to experience a “civilized” taste of the western lifestyle), it closed in that capacity in 2011, but happily recently reopened under local ownership. And it has a famous door… or at least a door used by a famous writer.

One of its log guest cabins is known as the “Hemingway Cabin”, where Ernest Hemingway stayed in 1928 with his wife Pauline while writing A Farewell to Arms. For a fascinating look at both the ranch’s history and the connection to Hemingway, click here.

But this IS a Thursday Door post, so I suppose you want to see the door…and of course there is one (otherwise how would “Papa” have gotten inside)?

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.
