After visiting Keystone, Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse and Deadwood it was time to head West again, this time to Cody, WY.
Cody is known as a bit of a Cowboy town and features the Cody Nite Rodeo which is famous enough that when I posted on Facebook that I was there, several friends and family said they had also been to this rodeo.
The rodeo did have a little special Contiki event for us. 3 volunteers had to go out and dance and the crowd decided who was best. I want to say a prize was given, but I haven't got a clue what it would have been so I don't think it happened.
After the rodeo, we hit the bars. There we got to meet some real cowboys and this being the second time I had met some true western locals, I was growing a little concerned. It seemed that when cowboys drank too much they got a little sloppy, not really showing their best face. Fortunately, they were harmless and eventually went away. But it did add to the fun of being out in a different environment then you're used to.
