TR: Evanston, Wyoming 10/22-25/09

Hello Wyoming ~ Well, we're back from our long weekend in Evanston and we had an absolutely marvelous time! I'll post my Trip Report in a series of replies day by day. Meantime, here's the 4-1-1 on us:

Our party: DH (43YO), YT ("yours truly," 45YO) and DS (13YO)

Why Evanston: we needed a vacay, but due to time and $$ constraints (DH & I are in process of renovating a house) we couldn't go too far or spend too long. DH had passed through Evanston en route to Jackson Hole on personal business 5 years ago and the town made a good impression on him, so he suggested Evanston, and the rest as they say is history!

So... Day 1 to come shortly... hope y'all enjoy reading.

Thanks to all for your kind compliments!

Kbecjeans: seeing as though Evanston is just 90 minutes or so out of SLC, it would certainly make for an easy weekender for you.

Tet14: Actually, Redd Foxx goes back to "Sanford and Son," which I understand was based on a show (on BBC?) called "Steptoe and Son." And don't remind me how long ago it was, hee hee hee....

Great report, you certainly have a way with words. Not to mention an eye for detail that most never include in their reports. Enjoyed reading about your trip. Like RedRox said, sometimes we need those "pick up our boots and go" type of getaways. Thanks for sharing.

Well, I've certainly been to Evanston often enough...I know where the best fireworks are, the Subway, the Walmart, the cheapest gas, but our favorite mexican restaurant closed, and while I was in high school there was a certain group of folks I know who would make a run up there for a keg of beer, don't know if that still happens. It is a great stop on the way to the Uintas or Bear Lake, but I have yet to spend more than an hour there. I don't even know if they still have the horse races though I am sure they do, Wyoming Downs race track is still there. So your adventure gave you a more thorough knowledge for sure.

I just spent a delightful half hour visiting Evanston with you and your companions. Great travel descriptions and a nice "guide" voice. I definitely would like to travel there as the beauty and the people sound great. Thanks :)
