Yesterday we took a quick trip over to the small Wyoming town of Lander. Eric had a Coast Guard activity and we decided to make a family trip out of it. We want to get to know our state a bit better. Our drive was great. We chatted. Cordelia slept. I crocheted and sewed.
The terrain became more beautiful as we approached Lander, which is located at the base of a beautiful mountain range. Pulling into town we drove up and down Main street and spotted many young and hip people, kind of surprising for such a small town. Overall we found the community completely charming! Loads of gorgeous houses and well maintained lawns.
I sent my friend Anne (who once lived here) a text asking her what we should do and she suggested that we visit The Sinks. The Sinks is an area of the Popo Agie River that disappears into an underground cavern system only to reappear 1/3 mile away. Very mysterious. Also very beautiful.

While our visit was short and sweet we really did love the area! If you are in the area I can't recommend it enough, a quick trip out of town, a beautiful drive and an amazing site. Do bring some bug repellent, I got 14 mosquito bites!
