“An Easterner had a nervous breakdown. Wyoming, with its wide open spaces and healthy pursuits, was prescribed as a cure.” - Clive Sinclair
Willow Creek Ranch in Kaycee, Wyoming is the site of the famed Hole in the Wall, a place where outlaws including Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid hid out in the late 19th century. The term Hole in the Wall originally described a narrow trail over the wall of red rock. In 2017, I spent a few days at the ranch.
“I don’t know if it’s just my age or the climate or the high altitude or some of those old-cowboy values rubbing off on me, but I’ve grown slightly mellower living in Wyoming. I think if you ride into the West on a high horse, you pretty soon end up in a pile of manure.” - Alexandra Fuller.
