Last year’s ride – Leisurely ride on two-lane highways through Scottsbluff to Agate Fossil Beds Nat’l. Monument with a lunch stop at The Saloon in Harrison. Good food, rattlesnake skins mounted on the walls, and real cowboys! Jane Pink got a really cute cowboy to show her his boots and spurs. You had to be there. Before leaving town, we made a quick visit to the local museum.
Saturday night the group met on the hotel porch for munchies, drinks and storytelling before going to dinner in the restaurant and telling a few more stories.
Lodging – hotel rooms are available at the fort’s restored enlisted men’s barracks; rooms have a/c; no TV and no phone. The fort’s campground has tree-shaded sights for tent and RV camping.
Sunday morning some of the group did the hayride breakfast; hearty food in a beautiful forest setting at the base of the nearby cliffs. Those who didn’t go to breakfast took out for Chadron to see the mountain man museum.
Saturday, Aug. 18th – Meet in Cheyenne at the McDonald’s at I-25 & College Drive (I-25 Exit 7). Depart at 9am.
