What a Difference A Day Makes

Yesterday, I was complaining and today was a wonderful day.  We met up with a local person, a blogger known as ‘One Fly’ and he gave us the best tour of this northwest part of Colorado.

Our first stop was at a butte overlooking Craig that had petroglyphs.  Unfortunately, only one of my pictures came out clearly.  There was too much sun glare for the others to show up on my camera.

The next stop was the Cowboy Museum in Craig.  It was a fascinating place with all kinds of cowboy and cowgirl stories and memorabilia.  There were plenty of old guns on display along with the leather holsters.  Carrying a gun in a holster must have added an additional 20 pounds to a person.

One Fly then took us to the Wyman Museum.  Oh, this is a must visit place.  It is a privately owned museum located east of Craig.  The owner is a collector of mostly machine memorabilia.  Here are some of my favorites.

I loved this lawnmower as it was probably one of the first riding mowers.

All in all, it was a banner day.  Thank you, One Fly.  We will visit again as we can’t stay any longer.
