Laramie, Wyoming

When I think Laramie, Wyoming, I first think of Matthew Shepard.

Then I think of the buffalo burgers at the Chuck Wagon, just off of I-80.

But now I will also think of my brother Ben, who just moved into a house in Laramie as he takes his first post-college job as diving coach for the University of Wyoming.

I teased him that, at an elevation of 7163 feet, he'd need a pressure cooker to make mac & cheese. Congratulations, not-so-little brother.
