As you all know, we travel by the seat of our pants while on vacation, allowing fate and happenstance to guide us. While on our way to visit family in Denver during our trip, we happened to pass the Buffalo Bill Museum. Being a curious pair, we stopped in to snoop around, and ended up having a wonderful time. This layout features some sites and memorabilia we got while on our side trip to the museum. If you’re into history that you can see as well as learn about, this is a neat place to check out. This museum was started by Bill Cody’s foster son, and is loaded with all kinds of cool artifacts from Cody’s life and from his Wild West Show.
You can also stop by his peacefully placed gravesite there on Lookout Mountain, where he rests eternally overlooking the Great Plains to the east while embraced within the Rockies. Cody’s grave is fenced in for protection, but as you can see in the lower right of the layout, many cast coins to his grave, a la wishing well. Poor Bill. How's a guy supposed to get any good rest with pennies bouncing across his tombstone?
If you’re in the Denver area, check it out some afternoon. Very cool.
