As 2010 comes to a close, it seems an appropriate time to reflect on what this year has brought to us here in Buffalo Bill’s Cody/Yellowstone Country.
We celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Shoshone Dam, now called the Buffalo Bill Dam – that structure completely changed the economy of Powell and Cody and the geography of the North Fork highway!
We had some top-name entertainers come to Cody this year for the Cody Wild West Shows – Billy Dean, the Kentucky Headhunters, Bryan White, The Bellamy Brothers, Suzy Bogguss, Asleep At The Wheel and Riders In The Sky wowed local audiences throughout the year.
Sleeping Giant Ski Area was featured on National Geographic Channel’s “The World’s Toughest Fixes” – ever seen a ski lift being built? Watch that episode!
We learned to be careful around wildlife – several grizzlies went haywire this summer…
Our local air service board negotiated a great deal with United Airlines AND we have a new terminal at Yellowstone Regional Airport – so flying to Cody is easier and more economical than ever (hint, hint)…
The 4th of July Stampede Celebration once again brought thousands out to celebrate the western way of life – and it was televised, too! ESPN broadcast the Cody/Yellowstone Xtreme Bulls in July.
The National Park Service unveiled its new Yellowstone National Park visitor’s center at Old Faithful – beautiful!
For the first time, the Capitol Christmas Tree came from a forest in Wyoming – and the tree’s stop here in Cody was cause for celebration on a cold November day!
And 2010 brought me, Corrie N. Cody, an opportunity to express my enthusiasm for this amazing place! I love to be able to blog about all there is to do and see here in Buffalo Bill’s Cody/Yellowstone Country.
So, until 2011, I’ll be…
Lovin’ life in Buffalo Bill’s Country!
