I enjoyed a pint of Black Tooth Brewing Company Brown Ale when we stopped for lunch at Longhorn Saloon and Grill in Sundance, Wyoming. 🍺
Today I learned Sundance, Wyoming, has nothing to do with the Sundance Film Festival, which is in Utah. However, it is the place from where notorious outlaw Sundance Kid got his name, having served time in prison there.
Jumping over the border into #Wyoming, my friend and I visited Devils Tower National Monument today, where we did a walk around the entire perimeter of the monolith. The weather has been overcast since mid-morning, with some low fog in places, so black and white seemed like the best filter for this #photo.
The TSA checkpoint was a breeze. I've already found the bar. Singular. It's roughly the farthest possible distance from my gate, but that's still only about a three-minute walk away.
The bar only has three taps, but since two of them are Barrio, I'm not complaining. I ordered some fries too. It's still four hours until I get to Rapid City.
If you're checking bags at Phoenix Mesa Gateway Airport, you have to leave the air-conditioned ticketing area, go back out into the 110° August heat, and then enter the TSA security checkpoint through a different set of doors. That's a new one for me.
Good read ...
Whatever happened to Villanova basketball star Shelly Pennefather? 'So I made this deal with God.'
She left her family, friends and basketball career to become a cloistered nun. Now, more than two decades later, Sister Rose Marie reaffirms her choice of faith over fortune.
The Basilica of the Immaculate Conception stands atop the grotto at Lourdes, France, just before dusk. This was the destination of an unscheduled road trip from Montpellier earlier this year when @kathryn and I learned an American cardinal would be celebrating Mass there. Photo taken in April 2019. 🇫🇷
