Wyoming, More Than Yellowstone

Roads Traveled with Linda L. Osmundson

Yes, Yellowstone and the Grand Teton Mountains are probably the most well known destinations in Wyoming. However, there are other smaller interesting tourist attractions. We travel I-80 often in route to Salt Lake City to see grandchildren but seldom go north on I-25.

Today I’ll give you ideas for two-day trips along those routes.

Yes, another week gone by, with some snow and more to come. The TV states that Colorado snow pack is fifty inches below normal. Maybe we will get some spring snows, which will do a lot of good. Spring is just around the corner, the crocus are out beside my driveway

Here it is, another week gone by. A lot of good music in town always; at Oskar Blues, The Fork, The Stone Cup, Spirit Hound Distillery, and others. You are always invited to attend and enjoy.

HOUSING
The Town of Lyons is getting lined up for the sixty recovery homes on a portion of Bohn Park, although a vote is still required. It is indeed a challenge to give up a part of that beautiful park, but what else? I do want to compliment members of the Housing Replacement Task Force

How Do They Do It? - Gold Hill

Lyons Preparedness

By Emily Gubler
