A full moon behind the five-story home of Francis Lee Smith, an engineer who labored on the house singlehandedly for more than a dozen years, in Wapiti Valley, Wyo., For nearly 30 years, Smith’s home, now abandoned, has loomed over Buffalo Bill Cody Scenic Byway, and inspired many stories.
“Au Cheval is dark, in a good way. It's a chef's diner: a greasy spoon with food crafted by people who really know what they're doing. The music pumps from a reel-to-reel tape player. The booths feel well-worn, but you know they're fairly new. I love the textures and colors in here - deep greys and purples. The tile on the floor was laid with the same care the chefs take with the food on the plate. Don't miss brunch, or their legendary cheeseburger.” – Jason DeRusha
