During our two days in Cheyenne, we spent the first morning and much of the second day downtown. The first day we headed over to the Diamond Horseshoe for breakfast – a little hole-in-the-wall where the locals eat or just sit around and drink coffee.
I had chip beef gravy on toast and Bev had this breakfast burrito with chorizo in the filling and green chile sauce on top.
Her sauce looked more like runny refried beans but it was so good we brought a pint home. Afterward we just drove around Cheyenne to see what it was all about - typical street, state capital with sculpture honoring the cowboy, the Union Pacific railroad depot - now a museum and offices but a gorgeous building, and a western store.
With cattle barons and railroad and gold tycoons, Cheyenne had many mansions and this one is now a B&B.We drove by a park with a steam engine and had to stop for a look and to let the dogs run loose awhile. I’ve seen these monster locomotives in photos but never live and I’m glad we ran across it – huge.
All photos can be enlarged by clicking on them.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
