Where I stayed
We then continued along 211 and finally came to a ranch called Horsecreek Cattle Co. (the ranches are all incorporated). After a while the owner, Dave Berry, a friend of Gina's, showed up. We had a nice chat, and I took some photos of his fabulous place. They had just had a wedding, he said. No wonder, they can easily accommodate hundreds of people. The ranch was located at the end of 211, and that's where the road ended. We therefore drove back leisurely the same way we came in, top down as before, 40-50 mph, and soaked in the great nature surrounding us. How many cars did we see on our 50 mile long tour? 10, 15 maybe.
Back in Cheyenne it was dinnertime. Gina took us to a Mexican restaurant, where we had delicious burritos and I a margarita and a Mexican beer.
Next Sunday the Cheyenne Frontier Days begin. As an old radio and tv reporter she has access to the press room at the rodeo stadium. It's located just above all the action. I will have the pleasure of joining her then. Gina is a working girl during the week, so I decided to head south to Colorado, and I'm currently at Estes Park close to the Rocky Mountains National Park.
