The 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 Road and proceeded
on to the Lariat Loop. The Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave are located on
Lookout Mountain. The cruise 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 part of 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. Larger photos for Cable-DSL users.
