It started with a parade. There were 4 parades. I just went to the first one.
There were cowboys, of course.
And lots of horses and horse-drawn vehicles.
And marching bands.
And old cars and old tractors.
And even bagpipes.
There was LOTS more, all of it interesting and fun.
A few of us went to F.E. Warren Air Force Base for their open house on the weekend. They had a tour of a few of the historic houses on base. I've never seen such base housing as this! Here's a house that's occupied by a colonel and his family. It was built in 1909 and it's over 6,100 square feet, not including the basement!! We weren't allowed to take pictures inside since it's a private residence. We saw 2 other houses which were equally beautiful, though the house occupied by a captain and his family was smaller ("only" 2500 sq ft). I wonder what they do with all the furniture when they leave and move to a base with smaller housing.
The rodeo is the highlight of Frontier Days. I enjoyed all the events which included:
Diana has some more pictures and even some videos on her blog. Check them out here.
Our last day in Cheyenne, the Air Force Thunderbirds performed an airshow nearby. I watched from the roof of my RV.
Now I'm on my way south to Colorado again for another week of fun with the WINs.
