Sweetwater Blues And Brews Festival

If you're headed to Yellowstone to see bears and bison why not stop off in nearby Rock Springs to enjoy two other fascinating "b's": blues and beer! This year's headliners are the Eric Jerardi Band, Randy McAllister, Hamilton Loomis and Lionel Young. There's a lot of other stuff to do in Sweetwater County too; you can explore the expansive Flaming Gorge Lake, rugged terrain full of hiking trails, camping, fishing and biking spots and even places to see where dinosaurs took their last plodding steps. www.tourwyoming.com
