Joe’s Liquor (by Roadsidepeek)

O Wyoming! After the flurry of interesting conversation and a surprising surge of indignation over carpetbagging, hearing about my home state on the national news left me merely with a curious fondness for the place. How strange, to search my hometown on the internet and view it through tourist eyes:  it looks deserted, brown, empty, but also unexpectedly aesthetic in that quintessentially western way. I cannot count the number of times I stood beneath this grand sign without considering it.
