Christopher Lawson – December 2

Wearing a buffalo hide jacket to stay warm Christopher Lawson poses for a portrait before the Christmas Parade at the corner of 18th Street and Carey Avenue. ""It's a simple town and I don't have to worry about crime, I come from a place where you walk 5 feet and your watching your back to see if someone is trying to rob you," Lawson said about living in New Jersey before coming  to Laramie County 5 years ago. The mountains and Cheyenne Frontier Days were what Lawson mentioned as what makes living in Laramie County special.
