Discovering Dubois

Doo-BWAH? I had never heard of this tiny town in Wyoming, and wondered why it would have a French moniker. Upon searching it on Wikipedia, I quickly found out some charming history regarding the name, and learned its "proper" pronunciation: DOO-boyz, as in dewpoint and cowboys.

I heard of this little gem of a town because my boyfriend had recently applied to a company whose multiple locations included Dubois. Little did I know as I chuckled at the cute story behind the name, that within a few short weeks, we would be packing up our life in Las Vegas, Nevada, and hitting the road for this inspiring haven tucked between the mountains and the badlands.
