Anyone who has been heading to Yellowstone by way of the East Entrance thru Cody has for sure seen this sign. It's where we stayed for a week while touring the town.

Now if you didn't stay at this particular campground you would have missed the local Rodeo round up car. They would come thru the campground with the loud speakers blasting the local events about 3 times a day.
We visited the Irma Hotel while downtown. Two years later we were in Harding ,Montana and bought some Indian Jewelery from a guy who had a shop in Cody, in the Irma hotel. He said the sister piece is still there. A couple of years later we went back and susie wore her piece of jewery and the sister piece was still there
They had some cool cowboy shows there in the evening.
Here's Susie trying to steal Wyatt's Colt 45.
There was an old town nearby where it was rumored Butch Cassidy and the Sindance kid hung out.
All this was very new to us and very interesting.
We also did the Buffalo Bill dam while in Cody.
There was really a lot to do in Cody. If all our towns had been this active, it may have taken us 6 years to do the tour of the U.S.
