Sure, once inside the Cheyenne Frontier Days gates, you'll be greeted with Dodge Ram trucks, the aroma of sizzling sausages and grilled peppers wafting from a nearby vendor, and cowboy gear---hats, boots, skirts, dresses.
But did you overlook the fun stuff that's right outside the gates?
If you've come to Cheyenne, you've likely already heard about the cowboy culture--a western state, Union Pacific hub, Cheyenne Frontier Days and the Daddy of 'Em All, Fort Washakie, the Wind River Reservation, and more.
Just outside Portal 11 of Frontier Park lies the Old Frontier Town. If you weren't headed toward the northern end of the grounds, then you'd likely miss it. But with the authentic western wares, games and petting zoo for children, and a chance to meet folks from the chuck wagons, you'll want to make a stop.
I knew the Indian Village was open when I heard the flutes playing. A family moved closer to the center ring to sit on the carved benches. A handful of people were chosen to participate in a performance. And others wandered in and out of the shop fronts, looking at dream catchers, pots, turquoise jewelry and other wares.
It was an idea born out of curiosity: What's it like on-stage during a headlining performance? Just so happened our crew had a GoPro camera and knew the guitarist for Jake Owen. Put the two together and it was a match made in heaven.
