Cody
Cody, who likes to brag about the wild image of the wild west, you really feel like a cowboy on the prairie. The city is named after William Frederick Cody, better known as Buffalo Bill. He was also one of the pioneers of the Wild West shows, who still play an important role in the city today. The Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody houses five museums and keeps the wild west alive. You will find everything about the life and the wild west shows of Buffalo Bill Cody. Furthermore, there are many weapons on display and you see art from cowboys and Indians. The Old Trail Town is also worth a visit, this "old town" consists of restored historic buildings. From June to September, a real 'wild-west shoot-out' is simulated in the evening (except on Sundays) at the Irma Hotel.

On your way to Cody you should definitely visit the picturesque Shell Canyon, where you can visit Shell Falls. This is a waterfall in the Bighorn National Forest on Shell Creek, about halfway between Shell Canyon and a few miles upstream from the town of Shell in northeastern Wyoming. The falls are 120 feet (36 meters) high. From the parking lot and the interpretive center one can see the access to the Cambrian flat sandstone, about 550 million years old, resting on 2.9 billion year old Precambric rocks - some of the oldest rocks on earth. You can also see 'Copman's Tomb', a huge limestone promontory in the north. You will also stop several times along the way to enjoy the view and to take pictures.

In this 4-star route you drive on beautiful good roads, a stop at Shell Falls and the Buffalo Bill Memorial you should definitely do.

History:
Cody is a small town near the eastern entrance to Yellowstone National Park. It has become a typical 'resort city' for the many tourist attractions in the area. Traditionally it was a true Wild West town, founded in the nineteenth century. The inhabitants still like to rave with that wild image. The city is named after Buffalo Bill, whose real name was William Frederick Cody. He financed irrigation systems, mines and starting businesses of friends. He was also one of the pioneers of the Wild West shows, who still play an important role in the city today. The people of Cody think back with love to this man and this time, which can be seen in the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, for example.

About this region
Wyoming ( (listen)) is a landlocked state in the western United States. The 10th largest state by area, it is also the least populous and second most sparsely populated state in the country. It is bordered by Montana to the north and northwest, South Dakota and Nebraska to the east, Colorado to the south, Utah to the southwest, and Idaho to the west. The state population was estimated at 578,759 in 2019, which is less than 31 of the most populous U.S. cities. The state capital and the most populous city is Cheyenne, which had an estimated population of 63,957 in 2018.Wyoming's western half is mostly covered by the ranges and rangelands of the Rocky Mountains, while the eastern half of the state is high-elevation prairie called the High Plains. Almost half of the land in Wyoming is owned by the U.S. government, leading Wyoming to rank sixth by area and fifth by proportion of a state's land owned by the federal government. Federal lands include two national parks—Grand Teton and Yellowstone—two national recreation areas, two national monuments, several national forests, historic sites, fish hatcheries, and wildlife refuges. Original inhabitants of the region include the Arapaho, Crow, Lakota, and Shoshone. Southwest Wyoming was claimed by the Spanish Empire and then as Mexican territory until it was ceded to the U.S. in 1848 at the end of the Mexican–American War. The region acquired the name "Wyoming" when a bill was introduced to Congress in 1865 to provide a temporary government for the territory of Wyoming. The name had been used earlier for the Wyoming Valley in Pennsylvania, and is derived from the Munsee word xwé:wamənk, meaning "at the big river flat".The main drivers of Wyoming's economy are tourism and extraction of minerals such as coal, oil, natural gas, and trona. Agricultural commodities include livestock, hay, sugar beets, grain (wheat and barley), and wool. The climate is semi-arid and continental, drier and windier than the rest of the country with greater temperature extremes. Wyoming has been a politically conservative state since the 1950s, with the Republican nominee carrying the state in every presidential election since 1968.
