Wyoming State Prison

Laramie, WYO.:Just a quick view of the main prison building and one of the out buildings as well as the field behind the prison compound.

Tomorrow, after two postings on jails/prisons I will return to the road postings that have less to do with incarceration. This prison, as far as prisons go, was actually very interesting to walk through as they had photos of former inmates from the Wild West Days, including a couple of celebrities like Butch Cassidy. Women were also housed here and mostly worked in the broom shop, making straw brooms that were sold to wholesalers. Making wicker brooms is quite the art and skill, seriously. I watched a video of a guy doing it and to get it right takes some effort and attention to detail.

All for now.
