On Saturday, we went to the town of Midwest to go 4-wheelin. Midwest is a neat little town which is surrounded mainly by oil fields. The only hiccup (aside from eating a lot of dust) was one of the 4-wheelers had a flat tire. Thank goodness it happened later in the day and not too far away from the trailer. I got to see some beautiful and interesting scenery.
You can see a couple of active drilling rigs here. As I was researching a little about Midwest, I found a few interesting facts. Back in 1870, they were the first to have an all woman jury. Nov.19, 1925 – First night lighted football game in the United States (Midwest vs. Casper, 0 -19.) Also, the first welded pipeline in the world in 1922.

You can see the snow-capped Big Horn Mountains in the background.
The little black specks are oil donkeys.
This is a wheel off an old oil derrick
You can see the same wheel and the foundation from which it fell.
