She was pretty much right on that. We looked into staying at Laramie and places in between Cheyenne and there and did not find anything. But we were able to stay on base at F.E. Warren Air Force Base as long as we didn't mind dry camping.
Turned out to be a good move. And at $10/night we are close to everything. Close to the CFD grounds and only about 5 miles from downtown Cheyenne.
We arrived on Friday afternoon and got set up. We took a drive around the area and found the capitol and the main downtown area. On Saturday we went to the CFD Parade. It was great!
We arrived early and found a spot near the front of the parade. We sat near Jerry who has been a regular here for the past 15 years. He was an interesting guy and we had a nice time chatting while the parade participants got lined up.
One thing he said was, "I hope you like horses, because there are about 1200 of them in the parade."I am not sure there were that many but several hundred for sure. And they were beautiful!
and then some
And there were more Rodeo Queens and Ladies in Waiting than I have ever seen anywhere
signaling the end
It was a great way to spend Saturday morning at the Cheyenne Frontier Days and our second parade we've seen this month!
Thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
