Wild West Adventures in Sheridan, Wy.

Wednesday morning the pack left Billings at a leisurely vacationing pace to head east and south to Sheridan, WY. We were pleased to find a robust, beautiful community at the edge of the Big Horn Mts. Downtown had many pieces of very nice artwork...

Even the trail dog appreciates art.
We met 2 legged friends Curt and Linda for lunch at a quaint local eating establishment. After a nice meal and visit, Curt gave us directions and a map for a hike up the Tongue River Canyon.

We made our way to the trail head and proceeded up the trail which followed the river, leading us up and up. This river gorge was spectacular, with towering rock above and rushing water below. This hike may have been the most breathtakingly beautiful we've ever been on.

After the hike, the pack headed back to Sheridan, then to Curt and Linda's where we got to meet many friendly 4-leggeds (although I wasn't quite sure about the cat!). We all had a great evening sharing good food and good company. Of course this included seeing the grooming sleds Curt had stored in his shed. Yes, we got to meet yet another groomer/skier!

Next stop - the Black Hills of South Dakota, specifically Sturgis, to visit another groomer/skier friend.
