Colorado PT Cruiser Club’s
“Cruise the Rockies VIII”
officially got underway on Friday August 8th,
2008. We met at the
city park in Golden, Colorado at noon and departed for Lookout Mountain
and proceeded on to the Lariat Loop. The Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave
located on Lookout Mountain. The
took you on a scenic mountain passage, winding
through towering ponderosa pines and montane meadows. At the top of the
mountain you got a spectacular view of Golden, Colorado.
The museum does a great job of telling the life story of the man who
played a big role in opening up the west. Filled with
lots of memorabilia, you get a good idea of what the "Buffalo
Bill’s Wild West Show" was like.
At his request, Buffalo Bill was buried on Lookout Mountain in 1917,
overlooking the Great Plains and the Rockies. This was an area where he
spent some of the happiest days of his life. This is a photo
slideshow of our cruise to the Buffalo
Bill Museum and Grave. We were led by The Colorado PT Cruiser Club, as
their “Cruise the Rockies VIII” PT Cruiser event. Cruise the Rockies is
held in a different part of Colorado each year. There are 116 photos of the
cruise, museum, and gravesite. Smaller photos for dial-up users.
