Labor Day weekend provided a great opportunity for everyone to attend the 5th Annual Snowy Range Music Festival in Laramie.  Highlights of the weekend included the March Fourth Marching Band, and Leftover Salmon with guests musicians Sam Bush and Bill Payne (Little Feat).  Also Travis Tritt, Jalan Crossland, Canned Heat and many more great musicians.  WPR's Paul Montoya was on hand to help MC the event.  Attending enjoyed great music, great food, and lots of sunshine.
