Eventually we passed out of the gate and found ourselves at the Pahaska Tepee which is not a Tepee but a large restaurant and cabins, together with the original cabin built by Buffalo Bill. Yes, that one. We ate a reasonable lunch there and read news items about a bank robbery in 1904 by the Hole in the Wall gang. It was apparent that Buffalo Bill wouldn't miss an opportunity for tourism and self-promotion, as he raised a posse which included several English noblemen!
From Pahaska Tepee we drove down the most beautiful road. It reminded us of Utah - high cliffs in oranges and reds, lovely spring colours along the river.
Once we got to the other end at Wapiti, we found we'd just driven along the Buffalo Bill Scenic Highway. From there were headed to Cody past the Buffalo Bill State Park and a huge reservoir dammed by the Buffalo Bill Dam. They seem quite proud of him in north west Wyoming.
We arrived in Cody and stopped on Tom's impulse at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, which wasn't all about Buffalo Bill. In fact that particular exhibit was closed so we only got to see his childhood home which had been hauled from Iowa and I think repainted.
We headed east. The landscape was flattish - high plains of dry grasses, red rocky outcrops. We saw horses and Pronghorn antelope.
Eventually we arrived in Greybull to stay at the Greybull motel - clean, comfortable, friendly owners - and eat at Lisa's (good food, if as usual TOO MUCH - ever since we left Seattle meals have come with soup or a salad, and they honestly didn't need to). Greybull is at the foot of the Big Horn National Forest - which looked a bit more like mountains that a forest to me and was the next day's first challenge.
