...as in "Dew-Boyz" AKA "Never Sweat." Yes that was the town's original name, but in those days the Post Office didn't have a sense of humor like it does now so they changed the name to that of a Senator of that name. The local pronunciation is decidedly not French and has in fact been called by some more colorful locals, "Dubious" for reasons that one can only imagine.
About 1000 folks live in this little Wyoming town year round but that seems to be enough to support 4 bars and ten churches. The population fluctuates in the summer months with visitors on their way to Yellowstone and in the Fall when hunters come in search of trophy big game including the illusive Rocky Mountain Sheep and the famed Giant Jackalope.
I've been knocking around this part of the world off and on for about 40 years. These are just a few of my recent shots. Well, the Jackalope shot is a little older when back when Mike was younger and could actually catch one.
