Ten Days to Deadwood
We live near Cheyenne, Wyoming. My wife and I are part of the PR group for Cheyenne Frontier Days and do a bit of reenacting in Old Frontier Town.
Back in the 1800's it took 3 days to travel by stage from Cheyenne to Deadwood. We planned a trip to Deadwood last year with family and friends and enjoy dressing the part of the Old West. This shot is part of our group.
I built a faro table to play and demonstrate to others how the old game of faro was played. I set up our group in a Deadwood hotel and shot these images.
