Cody, WY

After touring the Buffalo Bill Dam (the oldest in the USA) on the way into Cody, we spent most of the day at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in downtown Cody. What a unique museum this is. Besides a wide variety of bronze statues, there are five major sections: Plains Indian Museum, Cody Firearms Museum, Gallery of Western Art, Museum of Natural History and, of course, the Buffalo Bill Museum.

From there, we walked around downtown Cody and saw some of the 4th of July activities that happen in this unique little cowboy town. Tonight there will be a rodeo (which we won't see) and fireworks. We've decided to chill our heels at the RV park and watch the fireworks from here. BTW, I'm posting this blog from the western bar here at the campground since that's the only place with internet access. There may be another reason but you'll have to use your imagination...
