Land That We Love Tour ~ Sheridan, Wyoming


Wednesday September 22nd we arrived to Sheridan, Wyoming on our Land That We Love Tour. We drove 370 miles which took us approximately 5-1/2 hours. We stopped in Billings, Montana on the way to Sheridan to top off our gas at Costco. We paid $3.049 per gallon. When we arrived in Sheridan we did a little shopping along the main drag before we checked into our hotel and found a spot for dinner.

We ended up taking a recommendation to eat at the Wyoming Rib & Chop House. We paid more here, $63.77, than the service we received but it was the sign of the times with establishments not being able to keep full staffing. This is also a chain of restaurants in Montana and Wyoming and other states. We tried to stay away from chains when we could.

Watch out, Dear!

Our son has traveled to Sheridan for a Rodeo in the past. Some historical information can be found here.

We stayed at a Fairfield by Marriott at the AAA rate of $156. With the added taxes the total came to $176.28.

In the morning on day three of our trip before we moved along to South Dakota we shopped at Shipton’s Big R Sheridan and found boots for Dear and little JJ.

June Photo-A-Day Finale

I’ll be headed to Portland, Oregon for a wedding early on Saturday morning so I’ve decided to finish up all of the remaining photos from Kati’s June Photo-A-Day challenge and post them today.

24. Hat (oops #24 was Hot not Hat!)

Mom-armed forces day6I think a lot of people could describe these young men as “hot”.  My favorite branch of our military. I have just a little bias since our son-in-law is a Marine. They always look so sharp in their uniforms!
