A Postcard from Sheridan, Wyoming

Back to Sheridan and we hit the Cowoby Cafe for lunch.

When travelling I like to sample unusual local brews. Occidental Porter yesterday in Buffalo and today – Moose Drool. Not bad! A light brown ale. Jack preferring to stick with Blue Moon or something else.


Then we hit the streets took in a couple of statues, murals, old buildings and a spot of shopping – well, window shopping anyway. Visited Don King's Saddlery Museum too. What a collection!


Tonight we headed down to the historic Sheridan Inn, home of Buffalo Bill. Here, William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody, a then part owner, often auditioned new talent for his Wild West Show from the front porch.

The 22 rooms are decorated in the times and history of Buffalo Bill and 21 other people from his life. There are historical displays and photos throughout the lobbies. The first floor lobby still has original beams, plaster ceiling, floor coverings, fireplace etc.


The Open Range Restaurant offered up a variety of steaks, fish and other seafood.


I opted for the 'Plank Salmon' (came served on a plank of timber that it was cooked on) with Smoked Asparagus and Sautéed Mushrooms. Jack decided on Cajun Spiced Ribeye Steak, Loaded Baked Potato and Sautéed Mushrooms.

It was a WOW! Totally superb meal!
