Artist David Sherwin Parker recently wrote a beautiful essay about Sheridan and The Powder Horn Golf Community. We thought you might enjoy reading his impressions, accompanied by his some of his wonderful artworks:
As an impressionist painter, one of the most important elements when deciding where to live has to do with aesthetics, how a place looks, the visuals. After spending time all over the world, I was immediately drawn to Sheridan, Wyoming because of its gorgeous landscapes. The valley’s breathtaking panoramic vistas, the cradling mountains, and the dome of endless sky made me conclude that this hidden oasis is one of the most beautiful places on earth.
Sheridan is also a growing, vibrant community, not too big and not too small, filled with kind and enthusiastic people. This town provides comfort and convenience, easy access to shopping, dining, and the delights of other social experiences, but it also presents me with what I consider essential to living well: the tranquility of the great outdoors.
I’m an avid fly fisher, and Wyoming’s waters are something from my dreams; the myriad streams invite unhurried hours of summer casting. Additionally, the dynamic landscape plays host to the perfect nature hikes, occasional round of golf, game of tennis, ski adventure, or leisure horseback ride.
When I stumbled upon The Powder Horn Golf Community, I took all of these lifestyle requirements into consideration and there I immediately found the owners and staff were entirely focused on one objective: offering an exceptional quality of life.
Just a few short miles from Sheridan, The Powder Horn’s impressive clubhouse and golf course are studies in perfection. The attention to detail and level maintenance gave me the impression of true caring for the environment, ambiance, and a sense of home—all factors that are deeply important to me. Additionally, the estate views are sublime, like Western panoramas right out of a movie.
On closer examination, I found a limited number of extraordinary homes for sale, all exceptionally well designed and constructed, on offer at values impossible to find in Denver, Dallas, California, or almost anywhere else in the country. And, even though there were only a limited number of luxury homes available, I noticed there was a larger selection of reasonably priced building sites, all with enormous potential and ready for dream-home construction.
If I were a financial planner, I would automatically suggest making Wyoming home. The state’s financial benefits are endless: no personal or corporate income tax, no estate tax, and the extraordinary business-friendly environment.
But, I’m not a financial planner. I’m an artist interested in living life well. I write and paint, and my work is focused on conveying a message of life appreciation.
I would strongly suggest taking a close look at the possibilities to be found at The Powder Horn in Sheridan, Wyoming. That is, only if you are interested in Contentment!
