Our Time in Cheyenne Wyoming: Part One

Plains GalleyOn the 16th Bill made it about 8 miles outside of Cheyenne at the end of the day. It was drizzling on and off when I found him.  I drove Bill and Blackie to Cheyenne Frontier Days. We set the horse up with food an water and let our dogs run about and play for awhile.  We then drove to The Historic Plains Hotel.
 Earlier that day Brenda and myself where looking for accommodations for Blackie and ourselves while Bill was riding on highway 130. Of course, the first priority is always the horse. If we find a place for him, we usually can stay where he is if we need too. Straight away Brenda found the grand Cheyenne Frontier Days rodeo/ event center. Anyone who loves the western sprit must see this place. They have lots of great stuff to see. Check out their Schedule of Events page if you want to visit.

We asked around for the person we needed to get in touch with for accommodations for Blackie. Everyone was very helpful and we soon found the grounds caretaker; a very nice guy. Finding a place for Blackie was no problem, but it took a while before we found ourselves a place to rest.

We checked here and there and found The Historic Plains Hotel. This historic building not only has a western charm that isn’t found in modern hotels, it is also equipped to accommodate the demanding businessman with high-speed internet access, data ports, voice mail and electronic locks. The Plains was delighted when they heard about the journey Bill and Blackie are undertaking and offered us accommodations.
