2014 Wyoming -- one of my favorite activities during my week recently in Wyoming was a visit to the Old Trail Town in Cody, Wyoming. It is a collection of original historic cabins and buildings from the "Wild West" that have been moved to a single location in Cody where one can see first-hand a piece of American western history. I will be posting more pictures taken that afternoon over the coming weeks, but this image really captures for me the brave and difficult life experienced by our Western pioneers. The day we were there, temperatures were frigid around 10 degrees with steady, howling winds of 30 mph, gusting to 70 mph. Quotes from their official website: "Located here also are thousands of historic artifacts from the Old West and grave sites of several notable Western figures. Here are original cabins used by Old West outlaws Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and a Wyoming saloon frequented by Cassidy's "Hole-in-the-Wall Gang". Also on this site is the log cabin home of "Curley" a Crow Indian army scout who helped guide Lt Col. George A. Custer and the U.S. 7th Cavalry to the battle of the Little Big Horn in 1876. Old Trail Town exists today as a memorial to the uniquely American experience known throughout the world as "the Old West"."
