Cody Old Trail town looks as if it was interesting…
Hi, sorry for the late reply but I have been having big problems with WordPress at the moment. Yes I must admit Cody was fantastic for a wild west fan like me, the Old Trail Town was fantastic with cabins and bars used by some of the well known gunfighter characters, I was a little disappointed with the Buffalo Bill Irma Hotel in Cody but its one more ticked off the bucket list. If you are near Buffalo, WY, visit the Occidental Hotel (book early, its very popular and not many rooms), this was fantastic with a history that included Teddy Roosevelt, Herbert Hoover, Buffalo Bill, Calamity Jane, Butch Cassidy, Sundance Kid and the Hole in the Wall gang, If they were pleased with it that’s ok with me.
I have about 3000 pictures from our last road trip so there will be more going on the site soon. You also mentioned about the ghost town Rhyolite, it is in Death Valley and worth a visit, it was not quite what I expected with most of the building’s being concrete, once again I was thinking about the old John Wayne locations with wood shacks, there were a few, worth seeing though. One more thing, the Buffalo Bill Museum in Cody is fascinating, its a huge place with masses of exhibits. Thanks for the like and follow. All the best, Ian.
Thanks for your very comprehensive response, most interesting. My great fascination is with ruins and abandoned places, and so therefore I veer towards ghost towns!
During our last trip we stopped off at Virginia City, Montana which is a ghost town but has expert crafts people that give you information on all aspects of wild west life, I had some very interesting conversations with a carpenter and metalworker about the construction of horse drawn transport and wooden stagecoach wheels, its a very complicated process and he was very passionate about his skills. The town has a range of bars, houses and barns collected and preserved for the future. 1.5 miles away is Nevada City which is a populated town but with original buildings, again quite fascinating. We are planning our road trip for next year, if you find anything interesting please contact. All the best, Ian.
Hi, thank-you for your kind comment. This was the fourth year we have returned to the west coast USA, we went almost to the Canadian border to visit Glacier NP and then returned to Yellowstone and Grand tetons to revisit some of the places that were obscured by smoke haze from forest fires the previous year. But I must say some of the smoke haze images I took in 2012 have more atmosphere than the crystal clear ones in 2013. Ian.
