|Buffalo Bill Reservoir|
Cody Wyoming was a neat little town. Passing thru we found Buffalo Bill Center of the West, Old Trail Town, Stampede grounds, a couple of nice gun shops we visited and a house atop a hill that would make for a scary gobblin movie backdrop.

I've never seen such a frightening ride as the Big Horn Mountain Range provides. Straight up and straight down. It was so steep and scary that I forgot all about trying to get any photos. I just held on for dear life and literally prayed.

Gillette, Wyoming, a much needed generator repair stopover. . .
After spending a night at a Wal-Mart in Gillette, Wyoming we lucked up and found a Cummins dealer in Gillette to adjust the Onan. Seems the altitude was playing a part in it's problems that we've been dealing with since we left the state of Washington. These folks were wonderful. They took care of us within a half hour and they had two weeks of work in the yard waiting on them and they only charged a small fraction.

A short drive thru Sturgis, SD to see where all the motorcycle action is. Course no action going on here this day, just business as usual. It was a cloudy, rainy day for this small little one motorcycle town.

The museum here has the most extensive collection of American Indian artifacts that I have ever seen. This was much more educational to me than the Mount Rushmore Memorial.
