SHERIDAN (3,737 alt., 8,536 pop.), largest town in northern Wyoming, is a shaded community of cottonwoods and hedges at the confluence of Goose and Little Goose Creeks, in saucerlike Sheridan Valley. Fifteen miles west are the black, wooded humps of the Big Horn Mountains; to the east, the valley ends in the rolling Powder River pampas and waste lands.
Low altitudes and plenty of water give the area an exuberant flora. Gardens and parks are masses of bloom in summer; citizens compete for honors at the Sheridan Flower Show, sponsored each September by the Sheridan Garden Club, and seasonal blooms are shown informally.
Meandering Goose Creek traces an irregular dark-green line across the town, breaking the streets into short oblique avenues. Jutting smokestacks mark industrial plants among the trees; cows low in the distance
