We ended day four and began day five in Cody, WY. On the way to the Cody Rodeo the night before, we noticed what looked like an old frontier town in the fields between Cody and Stampede Park. We decided to check it out the next morning. It turned out being the Old Trail Town which was the original townsite of Cody, which was named after William F. (“Buffalo Bill”) Cody. If you are into Old West artifacts, you will definitely appreciate a stop by Old Trail Town.
After leaving the city limits and heading into the mountains we came across Buffalo Bill Dam. This dam was built in 1910 with no steel reinforcement and was the highest dam of the era. Another cool place to visit if you are in the area, and it is free.
