Kraut burgers and brooding skies.


This wonderful pillow of a sandwich is a Kraut Burger. Not just any kraut burger either. This is a Schwartz’s Kraut burger Kitchen yummy treat that needs two hands to enjoy.

Break it open to reveal a mix of ground beef and cabbage. Mmmmm, only way to make it any better is to order the Hot Cheese variety.


The little store front in Evans, Colorado makes the Kraut burgers daily. The dough is worked



While the beef and cabbage mixture is allowed to cool before being nestled in a blanket of dough.


Baked to a golden brown then wrapped in different colored papers marking plain, cheese, hot cheese, and chicken.


Joe and I have been enjoying these tasty and filling delights for 21 years. When we lived in Greeley it was a dinner dash at least once a week. Now living far away doesn’t stop us from enjoying them.

If you live anywhere near Greeley, LaSalle, Gilbert, or Platteville stop on by. Maybe you don’t like cabbage in any form. You might like a cinnamon roll 😀



After leaving with our kraut burger purchase it was difficult to wait until we got in the truck before scarfing down our favorite kind.

The wind has been blowing in gusts close to 35 miles per hour as we make our way to Rock Springs, Wyoming.


East of Sinclair, Wyoming the skies were filled with brooding clouds that threatened rain.



A bridge spanned a river that cuts through the mountain desert. The clouded sky and coursing water framed this old bridge making it stand out


Tomorrow we will be traveling through Wyoming and into Idaho on roads Joe and I have not been on. According to the Scale Master in Laramie, Wyoming we are to have our cameras ready.

So until tomorrow… travels to you and your families.

    Oh wow that is a fantastic skyscape, it looks very menacing doesn’t it? However it does frame the bridge beautifully and that is a great shot Leslie, thank you 🙂
    I will skip the burger with cabbage thank you 🙂 The cinnamon rolls do look very nice though – we (the family) call them snail buns as the shape looks similar to a snail shell!
    Safe travels and looking forward to more photos.
    Love and hugs

      Snail rolls is an appropriate name for those delicious cinnamon and sugar laden goodies. I love them but they don’t love me back :-(. Heartburn and burps is what I get. Plus a bit more girth. I stay away from them as much as I can. Once in a while I need to be reminded why I don’t eat them.

      I’ll keep an eye out for more bridges :-).

      Those menacing clouds would have been cause for alarm in Oklahoma. Tornado sky it is called at home. Here in Wyoming the clouds mean rain or snow, nothing too serious.

      Hope you had a “brilliant” visit with your sister.

      Love you – Leslie
