We are at another historic hotel this one is in Cheyenne, WY. The Plains Hotel opened in 1911 as Cheyenne's premier full service hotel. The hotel received a "face lift in 2002 and is really quite nice. Our room is huge, and the shower is tiny. We are across the street from the railroad station which is an architectural delight. It was a 310 mile drive from Rapid City to Cheyenne. That's 300 miles of wide open spaces. This is a BIG country.
