On to Sundance, no, not the town that you’re thinking of but Sundance Wyoming.
Why did we go there you may ask? Because once again,
that was the closest town with a hotel to Devils Tower National Momument.
It’s kinda of out in the middle of, well, nothing and nowhere, but once you spot America’s first National Monument, it’ll take your breath away.
We spent a good part of the day at the park, hiking around the base of the igneous intrusion, that’s what it’s called, I thought it was a granite tower.
We tried to have a picnic lunch, but the bees were everywhere and very aggressive, so we dined in the car.
Trying to find dinner in a very small town can be a challenge, but I had done my homework.
Aro Restaurant, very unassuming and homey. Each of us ordered a burger with sweet potato fries (they called them yam fries) that came with ‘yam butter’.
When our waitress came back to check on us, I had to ask, what is yam butter. She gave me the basic recipe, combine butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and butterscotch sauce. I know it sounds crazy, right? but it works! She also told me that she spreads it on her morning toast, mmm!
Dessert was one of the daily special pies, chocolate and peanut butter with a meringue topping, very good, perfect crust.
