CHEYENNE (6,062 alt., 17, 361 pop.), pronounced shi-an, capital and metropolis of Wyoming, is on a broad plain where the gradual slope of the prairie meets the steepening grades of the Laramie Mountains.

Older Cheyenne was laid out parallel with the Union Pacific Railroad tracks, and its streets are diagonal to the main compass directions; and where these additions join the original townsite, streets are a maze of pointed intersections, short courts, and blind avenues. Residents and visitors alike are uncertain of compass directions.
