We spent the afternoon in Basin today. It is just over an hour's drive north of Thermop on US-16/20. Instead of coming into town via the main road, we took a back entrance to take a few shots from that perspective.
Basin is the county seat for Big Horn County. This is the county courthouse which is flanked by lilac bushes. To learn more about the town and its Lilac Days festival, click here.
Below is the U.S. Post Office (part of the National Register of Historic Places).
This is the Big Horn County Library:
We were fortunate to meet Dee Hilton (below) who created the stained glass for the doors to the church sanctuary. She has numerous works in several towns here in Wyoming. You can reach her at DeeHilton@tritel.net.
Across the street from the church is the parsonage. The stained glass in the front window is also Dee Hilton's creation.
Abundant Life Baptist Church (if you wish to read the sign below, just click on the photograph to enlarge it):
This is the Laura Irwin Elementary School:
As you can see by the sign, they refer to themselves as the Lil' Rebels, Rebels being the town mascot for the high school.
Riverside High School is in an adjacent building, and this is the depiction of their mascot.
Just like Thermopolis has a T-Hill, so Basin has something similar:
On the other side of the road from the "Entering Rebel Country" sign (above) is the welcome sign below. On the right of the photograph is the First Baptist Church.
On the northwest side of town is this lovely park.
