SUBLETTE COUNTY – Sunday was a glorious day, in part to the sunshine and also much more for the commitment of the community and volunteers who help out with the annual Sommers Ranch Homestead Museum open house and the recognition of the region’s Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame inductees.

Hundreds of all ages came from all over to tour the homestead, “milk” a cow and eat a beef dinner of Sublette’s top 4-H steers bought by Albert and Jonita Sommers and cooked by Scott Mackie. Cowboy beans and homemade pies of every color and flavor topped off the meal as Jared Rogerson again played for the appreciative crowd.

WCHF Region 10’s Windy Noble took over presenting the specially framed certificates, stepping in for her replacement Andy Nelson. WCHF President Candy Moulton also attended.

The cowboys honored stretched from 2018 through 2021, with last year’s get-together postponed until this year, and new inductees traveling to the statewide event later this week.
