This is the capitol building in Cheyenne. Notice the statue of the woman in the front.
This is ESTHER HOBART MORRIS and the inscription reads: Proponent of the Legislative Act which in 1869 gave distinction to the territory of WYOMING as the 1st government in the world to give WOMEN EQUAL RIGHTS.
Did you know that? Hooray for Wyoming! Inside the building in the rotunda was a small statue of the first woman to vote, but I neglected to take a picture of that. The second thing that really impressed me was this:
Just as you step into the rotunda, turn right and there is the Governor's office! It's right there, accessible to all. And on the receptionist's desk were pumpkins and halloween candy!

This is the ceiling in the Senate room. Very beautiful in golds and greens.

Ernie and our friends, Dick and Bev, in front of the restored historic depot in downtown Cheyenne.

We went to the museum on the grounds of the famous Cheyenne Frontier Days, and I caught Ernie looking at this sheep herders wagon. I'm hoping he wasn't thinking of downsizing again!
