The campus at Laramie...those are benches outside the student center.
That's Rick and our host Bryan walking across campus...oh, it's really not this bad... I am exaggerating. The snow has stopped. (If we had arrived a day earlier we would have spent the night in Denver as the road were closed!) But now the sun is shining, and the snow melting.
Rick outside his guest office in the Mathematics Department, University of Wyoming.
Laramie fashions today...another wool dress keeps us cozy. In our pretty Laramie bedroom with sculpture and suitcases in the background.

The most mathematical part was tasting these local brews! Quite a few micro-breweries in these parts. All are draft, and not available bottled or canned.
We liked them all, but Kathy especially likes the amber ones. Both of us liked the second from right "Solar Weizen" which has a subtle "vanilla-banana" flavor, but not sweet. The fourth from the left was "Back Country Bitter, which reminded Rick of his favorite English beer, from when he spent a year in London, except this one had less carbonation.
From left to right:
Altitude Amber Ale
Back Country Bitter
Bearpaw Brown Ale
High Plains Pale Ale (another of our favorites)
