Winter in Wyoming

Riding for the elite in downtown Cheyenne (early 1900s)

Jethro’s trip came with elk cookies for the journey

Prairie Dog O'Byrne riding an elk in Old Colorado City or Cripple Creek

Correction: this is more likely Old Colorado City (Colorado Springs at
the turn of the century) or Cripple Creek. There was an eccentric goldminer in
Cripple Creek who had two elk named “Thunder” & “Buttons”.
Prairie Dog O’Byrne would ride to town on Sundays in a carriage
pulled by the two elk, accompanied by Laura Belle, his friend from the
red light district in Cripple Creek. All of the “gentile” ladies
in town would turn their heads when the carriage drove by.
