Shoshoni, WY, part 3

I was pleasantly surprised to find Shoshoni's recreational area. The colorful playground below is next to one of its baseball diamonds.

Hey There! "WOW" I do have to say that I never thought I would ever see Shoshoni Wyo on the internet let alone have a webpage for its Adverstisments!! I went to school there in the late 60's and earlie 70's. YES, That was my stomping ground as a youngster. Actually it was a very pleasent place for a young boy to grow up in. My BB-Gun and dog would venture the prerries and sometime not come home till dark. That was a better part of my life. I've been back only a couple of times since then and It sure has changed alot. I once worked at the A&W Rootbeer stand there. Who ever put this up, I would like to say Thanks. Very nice job indeed!!
