Wyoming’s Christmas To-Do List; Is Long Enough Already
"Things Wyomingites do before they say it's Christmas," is a nice list given by our friends at OnlyInYourState.com. See if you think the website mis-characterized us. To call us "outdoorsy" is fair, but see if you think this list is a bit overdone.
Ice Skate: We certainly have ice skating rinks, from Jackson to Cheyenne and from Gillette to Casper, but some of us could use skating lessons first.
Sleigh Ride: Outside Jackson, which is a Christmas Postcard every December, it’s not in every Wyoming town you can even find sleigh rides.
Snowmobiling: Okay they’re gaining on it there. In some parts of the state, it's not a question of whether or not every household owns a snowmobile, but is it two? It could be 2.4 in the Yellowstone region.
Bobsledding: And they mean with real dogs. See, that’s another thing that sounds like fun, but most of us wouldn’t know, because we’ve never actually done it - bobsledding.
Skiing: Well, sure, most Wyomingites know how to ski, but have you seen lift ticket prices in recent years?
Ice climbing: Really! At least they do point out that this is one that may not be for everybody. Maybe it’s for hardly anybody.
Cutting your own Christmas tree: Alright, definitely a Cowboy State tradition for many.
The rest of the Christmas events included Town Square lightings like in Jackson, Main Street Strolls like in Sheridan, and Christmas services, like at the Chapel of Transfiguration. No one wants to sound "Scrougey" about those classic celebrations, but bobsledding and Ice climbling?
Merry Christmas from the real Wyoming.
