Wendover Will greets you on the west side of Wendover. We came in from the east but did find a nicely supplied Smith's grocery store near Will that met many of our needs at a low price.

we've seen him each time we've been in Wendover. It's interesting the first time, but then just becomes the "norm"

I am a old person now but remember going to Wendover as a youth with my parents and seeing the BIG cowboy sign waving as you come in to town and it still does.

This is the coolest guy EVER! We were traveling along Wendover and saw this amazing cowboy along the road. Of course we had to take pictures! FYI: I'm in love with Wendover Will :)

Wendover Will is a cool guy and makes an otherwise austire place seem welcome and friendly. Wendover would not be the same without him.

Unsure of the history of this statue, but stopped on roadside to get photo, illuminated at night too!

Not a very long walk from the Rainbow and in the evening there wasn't much traffic so it was easy to get over to the statue. Not very good surrounding light for nighttime photography

Nother to share really. He just stands there when you enter town and lights up at night. The Las Vegas style downtown appeal of Front Street.

Stopped in Wendover for the night. Could see Will from the interstate so we had to go visit him. Very easy access. Very easy to grab a pic of him. His presence brought a smile to a weary traveler. Glad we stopped in!

You MUST see him and get a picture of him and next to him. This is just a big big cowboy that is very unique and unusual.
