Cowboy Cow

This bright figure stands in Wardensville, West Virginia. Although the store is named the Lost River Trading Post, it is not in the town of Lost River. However, it is not far from the Cacapon River, which is the same body of water as Lost River except that it is the part of the river that reappears after being "lost" under Sandy Ridge. If that's confusing, check out this post from last year.

By the way, the trading post sells coffee, antiques, and art.

P.S. I just found out her name is Cowlamity Jane! The store is celebrating their 3rd anniversary today and posted some pictures on Facebook.
