Where I stayed
Julie was right.. This is an awesome, not to be missed museum. It has 3 big wings and wonderful collections of western art, sculpture, furniture, wagons, clothing, weapons, an Indian wing and great photos and reproductions of rooms in BBill's home.
Charlie and I sat on the porch at "Dirty Annie's" and ate lunch and made many photo stops before heading into the jBig Horn nat'l Forest.
I thought BigHorn Nat'l forest was a misnomer as we saw Grand Canyon like gorges and mountains but no forests. We passed a creek strangely named Prune Creek and many signs saying the steep rock walls were "pre-cambrian granite, 2.5 billion years old". Impressive. Then we ran into forest where they were cutting through a new highway. A "golf cart" led us through the rest of the forest at about 3 miles an hour. When I finally was able to hit 40 mph, I felt like I was flying.
Tonight Charlie and I are lounging at a Motel Six and soon to go explore this old town of 3900 residents.
