John came through Dubois in 2013 on his bicycle trip across the U.S. He discovered that the original name for this town was "Never Sweat" because the wind blew all the time. The U.S. Post Office disagreed and named it Dubois, with a French pronunciation. Being the independent-minded folks they are, the residents pronounce it "Dooboys" to this day.
Gary Keimig in his gallery among his breath-taking paintings.
I walked into a gallery on the main street and fell in love with these paintings. I told the caretaker how much I enjoyed them and he introduced himself as the artist, Gary Keimig. He grew up in a pioneering family int he area. It was a pleasure meeting him. (He says this is the spot all the tourists have him stand.)
You can see our RV park in the background of Buddy's Bar-B-Q. It was the Wind River KOA and has a wonderful river flowing through it. While we were there, it was over the bank with water and rushing swiftly along its way.
Outside of Dubois, the landscape became so dramatic, we had to stop and take pics.
