It was also the home of William Frederick "Buffalo Bill" Cody. Well known name around the world. A real cowboy town. Just as Canada has skating rinks all over town, here they have rodeo rinks taking place daily in the summer months. A pastime for the locals. Cowboy hats and boots are a must for these guys.
Here we couldn't resist but to go and see the bar given to Buffalo Bill by the Queen of England in 1900. At that time the manufacturing cost of this magnificent example of woodworking craftsmanship made entirely of rosewood, was $100,000. Well over a million nowadays.
Just about 5 Km
Should be mention that before arriving, we had lunch in a lookout up in the mountain on a bit of an incline. (Movie below) We knew that at 1/3 of a tank of fuel or less, -we had a bit more than that- air might get in the lines of the generator causing it to stall. Sure enough that incline did it for us and "how would Glenda blow dry her hair now!". Her prime concern! Pay attention guys, It this doesn't illustrate the way a real woman thinks, I don't know what will.
This town is memorable in more than one way. Not a single person knew how to fix it and the closest town that can deal purging the line is around 300 Km from here.
Enough time was spent in finding this out, so we continue on to Yellowstone National Park.
