Second, Wyoming was a place where people hardly ever ask what you plan to do next, what your ambitions are, what you’re interested in, or even much about where you’ve come from and what’s happened to you in the past. People seem to care about the moment and politely never want to pry. What a relief it was to me! The space, isolation really, relieved me, too. There’s a hometown feeling that encompasses the entire state, yet the distances remove anything that in another place I might have interpreted as oppressive.

There is something for everyone—joggers can put on their cowboy boots and hats and run in the Boots & Spurs Road Race, cooks can enter two cookoffs, Biscuits & Gravy and Chile & Cinnamon Rolls, and husbands can easily find the company to stay out all night. For the parade, everyone in town turns out. Even those who grew up here return from cities and suburbs to show their children and remind themselves of what they see as the romance of small-town life in the West. Businesses close. Mr. Stanley respects the town’s traditions and locks tight the doors of his office.
