Jess Camilla O’Neal & The Neversweat Players

If you visited us last year, chances are you were lucky enough to be entertained by Jess and Norm. All season long we looked forward to Monday evenings because for an hour or so we could sit with a drink, relax and listen to their beautiful harmonies. We’re very happy to share that Jess Camilla O’Neal and the Neversweat Players have released their album, “Awaken to the Wind” and now we can listen to our favorite songs on Tuesday or Saturday or any time we want. No more counting down the days until Monday. The downside of the album is there’s no witty banter but the upside is the addition of the other two band members, Chris Sabatka and Steve Glenn. It makes me nostalgic for those Monday evenings under the big Wyoming sky and excited to get our 2014 season underway. The album can be downloaded on iTunes and CDBaby. The latter gives you the option of purchasing...

Cowboy Breakfast

A couple of weeks back we thought it would be fun to change things up and bring breakfast to the fire pit. Our chef, Michael, worked as a cook for a pack trip outfitter last summer so he didn’t shy away from the opportunity to cook eggs and bacon over the fire. As soon as I smelled the aroma of woodsmoke and bacon I knew it was going to be great.

Swedish Smorgasbord

Swedish Smorgasbord

We received this press release from the Wind River Visitor’s Council and thought we’d share it. The Swedish Smorgasbord is is a fun annual event in Dubois that’s going on this Saturday, June 15th. The Swedish Smorgasbord celebrates the legacy of the Scandinavian tie hacks that cut cross-ties for the railroad industry for over forty years in the national forest of the Upper Wind River Valley.  The ties were cut throughout the winter and gathered along creek banks awaiting the spring floods.  Once the spring melt-off began, the ties were driven into the water and floated 100 miles via flume and the Wind River to the railroad terminal in Riverton.  As the ties were driven down stream, the tie hacks gathered at camps along the river banks and ate traditional Scandinavian food cooked in Dutch ovens.  Passers-by on the highway stopped and joined the tie hacks in these meals and turned the gatherings into celebrations. When the railroad ceased logging in the Upper Wind River Valley, Lydia Olson (wife of Wyoming Tie and Timber Company woods boss Martin Olson), joined with members of the St. Thomas Church Guild to continue the community tradition.  The community potluck featuring traditional Scandinavian food was first held in 1948 until the early 1990s.  The Dubois Museum Association revived the tradition in 2004 as part of Dubois’ 90th birthday celebration.  This year’s event features live music, homemade food, a viewing of the re-mastered National Forest Service film of the last tie drive, and a pie raffle. Tickets for the 2013 Swedish Smorgasbord are $12 for adults and $8 for children and are available at the Dubois Museum, Dubois Chamber of Commerce, Headwaters Center, and Water Wheel Gifts. For more information phone the Dubois Museum at...
