Wyoming Lifestyle Magazine:


We enjoyed a VERY busy (and exhausting!) day at the Wyoming Cowboys v. Nebraska Cornhusker game Saturday, September 24. The weather was BEAUTIFUL and the crowd was EXHILARATING.  Levi and I served a little time as UW Cheerleaders ourselves, and we were excited to feel that rush of the crowd while on the field — sure brought back some great memories!  (I also found my old uniform for sale at the cheerleaders’  fundraiser tent — I had to snag it before it was gone forever!) Below are a few images from the day — and be sure to check out the link to our video of the drum line from UW’s Western Thunder Marching Band warming up — the whole band is awesome and we’ll have more footage coming, but we were really awed by the cool tricks the drum line had up their sleeves for us…

Wyoming Lifestyle Magazine:


Thanks to Rob McIntosh for sending us this new installment — Rob is an avid motorcycle rider, and travels the state frequently.  He also happens to be one heck of a writer and photographer!  We enjoyed this viewpoint on Buford, a town of much fame along Interstate 80 in southeastern Wyoming…article and photography by Rob McIntosh — thanks Rob!

With fall well under way, a couple of us decided we should definitely take advantage of a nice September weekend.  So, we filled the tanks on our bikes and dressed for the coolness of the morning.  Sunrise was 6:44 AM and we’d left Torrington headed south toward Cheyenne by then. Our destination was Buford, Wyoming.

Within two hours we were parked outside the Trading Post in downtown Buford.  Unfortunately, the Mayor, town council, owner and operator of the Trading Post as well as the rest of the townsfolk were all gone when we arrived.  That’s not unusual since the town of Buford has a population of one.

Established during the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad in 1866 and named after Major General John Buford the town is located between Cheyenne and Laramie on Interstate 80. In 1880 Buford had a post office and boasted a population of at least 2000. At 8000 feet elevation it is the highest community on Interstate 80.

Today, Don Sammons who is the only resident runs the Trading Post and lives near by in the only house in Buford.  As Mayor, Don says he wants to retire, so the entire town is up for sale. We were glad Don found a friend to watch over the town in his absence.

Strangely enough, while we were there several vehicles stopped for fuel.  One couple with their three children and cat were pulling a U-Haul.  They were headed from Vermont to their new home in Oregon.  Others stopped for refreshments and use of the facilities.  At one point, the population increased 12 fold when a van with a few adults and some teenagers stopped by.  This might have been unusual but for the short time we were there, Buford was quite busy.

We stayed long enough for some snacks and a few photos of our bikes with the Buford sign and Trading Post and then headed on.  Our ride took us on to the Happy Jack Road just west of Buford and back to Cheyenne.  The weather was perfect, the ride was beautiful, and the visit to Buford was enjoyable as well as educational.  We hope to return to Buford at a later date and meet the entire population while we are there.

If you are ever traveling Interstate 80 between Cheyenne and Laramie, stop at Buford for a break.  The pop is cold, the coffee hot, and the atmosphere is very pleasant.  You never know, you might buy yourself a town while you’re there.

Thanks Rob! Buford is one of our little spots of folklore in Wyoming — when you’re cruising along I-80 in southeastern Wyoming, be sure to stop in and say hello and take a picture!

WY TRAVEL: Guernsey Lake – Did You Miss This?

Thanks to Rob McIntosh for sending in this editorial and images — Guernsey Reservoir is a popular destination for many folks, and I appreciate this perspective on the little details that are commonly overlooked…all images and article are by Rob McIntosh of Torrington. Thanks Rob!

Keep in mind while reading this that in no way am I saying there is anything wrong with fishing, camping, boating, skiing, and other water sports that go on at Guernsey Reservoir.  This is my attempt to focus (pun intended) on what the majority of the people spending time at the lake will never see. High above the beaches and crisp blue water of the lake lies an all together different world that is seldom seen unless a person takes time to climb the cliffs.  Since the lake area was carved over a vast amount of time and most of the cliffs were under water at some point in that time, there are dozens of things worth photographing as you climb to the top.  In addition to the cliffs themselves, you will find all kinds of interesting and seldom seen sights.

As the layers of shale were being formed, small animals and plants became trapped in the mud.  As time went on, these areas were exposed to the elements and eventually those fossilized plants and animals showed up on the surface where you can clearly see them.  In other areas, the air pockets had created crystallized formations called geodes. Again, these areas worked their way to the outside world and became visible to those climbing the cliffs.

With the Earth shifting and water wearing away at these areas for eons, those layers are lined along the cliffs so they look like old books or newspapers stacked up so someone could grab them and leaf through the pages.  One such book fell off the stack and is sitting on edge waiting to be picked up and returned to the pile.

There’s an area where water flowed over the layers of sedimentary rock cutting a channel into it.  Then, that channel filled with sediment and eventually turned to rock.  It boggles the mind to think that these cliffs high above the lake were at one time under the lake.

Eventually through erosion and wind, the area began to support plant and animal life again.  Obviously, the water below supports an abundance of life, both plant and animal, but the life on the cliffs is all together different. As the cedar trees grow and die, they leave behind pinecones and needles and eventually themselves as nature’s artwork. The cactus plants bloom with their waxy flowers along with the yucca and thistles all surrounded by thorny leaves or threatening spikes.   Plants sprout and grow in the cracks of the rocks where it doesn’t seem there is enough soil to support even the tiniest sprig.  Bees, bugs, and other signs of life appear everywhere.  All this and more exists high above the water and the beaches just waiting for those people like me to see them and photograph them.  So, sometime when you are at the lake and get tired of the water and all the activity that surrounds it, take a hike up the cliffs and see this other world that exists within the confines of Guernsey Reservoir.  It is a wonderful sight, especially from the top.

Thanks Rob! I appreciate this new view, and will be sure to share it with my boating family so they too can appreciate what they’ve been missing…Guernsey Reservoir and the town of Guernsey, along with Platte County Wyoming, are a fun point of tourism in the state. Water sports and historical points (such as Fort Laramie!) are popular destinations — be sure to add them to your Wyoming tourism bucket list!

WY HUNTING & FISHING: “The Tug Is The Drug – It’s Streamer Time On The North Platte River”

Thanks to Platte River Fly Shop & Mark Boname Photography for our latest installment in our look at Wyoming hunting & fishing!

Fall is definitely known as “trophy trout time” on the North Platte River Tail Waters and it’s one of our favorite times to fish. Because of the heavy snow pack runoff, the North Platte has been high all summer and is finally starting to recede to its normal fall clear low levels.

Streamer fishing is probably our most favorite way to fish the North Platte because it produces so many large fish. As the river drops this fall, the lower flows will give fisherman access to classic runs, flat-water glides, and undercut banks that are typically obscured by higher flows during the summer. With this clear water most of the time you can actually see the fish come out of nowhere and eat your fly. Streamer fishing in general involves a little more casting than other methods but the reward is definitely there. It is truly something special when a big fish almost pulls the rod from your hand while attacking your fly on the retrieve.

It can also be said with reasonable confidence that fall on the North Platte offers anglers their best shot at a true trophy. Double digit browns as well as rainbows are caught every year in the fall. On these fall streamer trips you won’t catch as many fish as nymphing  in the spring and summer months but the size and quality will make up for it.

To streamer fish effectively you must cover a lot of water; so fishing from a boat is the most effective way to cover long sections of the river. However, those that wade can also do well by using a heavier sinking line. We recommend a 7 to 8 weight fly rod with a sink tip line for throwing big streamers all day.

Don’t forget to bring your dry fly rod and a box of small dry flies as well. Fall is one of the best dry fly fishing times of  the year. We have both a good Blue Wing Olive and Pseudo hatch along with some left over hoppers and caddis. Watch the banks as you float down river as these fish are feeding very quietly and half the time you have to see them to know they are there.

We hope you have a great successful fall fishing season and please don’t hesitate to visit our website at, our Facebook page at North Platte River Fly Shop, or call the Platte River Fly Shop at 307-237-5997.

Thanks Mark & Platte River Fly Shop for this column!  Happy fishing this fall season — the weather is still gorgeous, so be sure to get out there!

‘Til Next Time…I’m craving more outdoor activities while the weather’s so beautiful!
