The funny thing is - I'm starting to really see myself there. I never, when starting this crazy adventure (or even until just a few weeks ago), would have said or thought Cheyenne (or Wyoming for that matter) might be a potential place for me to land right now.
Not because I dislike either Cheyenne or Wyoming - I'm quite the Wyoming cheerleader - it's just not the vision I had for myself.
But things don't always go the way you think they might. Of course, I have yet to be offered anything from the organization, so we'll just have to wait and see if this is where I'll be or not.
Until then, just a couple pictures from the ol' state capitol...
Ah...to see a dome-shaped building again! Ha.
The legs on the horse in this sign move. There was a car behind me so I don't have an action shot.
On the pass between Cheyenne and Laramie...wait, Lincoln Monument?? Where am I?
Ok, what does Lincoln have to do with Wyoming or I-80, you ask? Good question. So good that hundreds of people who have passed by it hundreds of times don't really know. So, I Wikipediad it. Turns out the Lincoln Highway, or "The Main Street Across America," was the first transcontinental highway. The idea was thought up by a guy named Carl Fisher and one of his heroes was ol' Abe. The place where the monument is located just so happens to be the highest point on all of I-80, so that's why the statue is there.
Ok, this is maybe a tad bit creepy...
Anyway, my big day ended with beers and watching Battlestar Galactica with my old friend Jonah. This isn't really Wyoming related, but somehow it so is.
