"This is a hill climber’s route up Lookout Mountain, visiting the grave of Buffalo Bill Cody and an accompanying museum. In 1917 Buffalo Bill Cody—the former trapper, Pony Express rider, army scout, and buffalo meat supplier to railroad crews, who parlayed his nationwide celebrity as a frontiersman into worldwide celebrity with his Wild West Show—found himself not
only dead but trapped on Lookout Mountain.
Buffalo Bill had expressed a wish, in writing no less, to be buried above his namesake town, Cody, Wyoming, so it’s a Colorado mystery how he ended up here. Revenge of the buffalo According to one theory, his widow subverted his final wish
because she was bitter about Bill’s infidelities. But that may be a bit of a smokescreen to cover what really happened."
