We're hard at work finally, putting the new site look up, and making sure all the content is fresh and newly updated. Please bear with us over the next week or two if you find something missing or a broken link or two. We are working hard to get caught up so if something doesn't work right today, please check back tomorrow!
If you're looking around for a few of the sections we had before, I'm sorry to say that some of them are just plain gone. I decided it was time to narrow the focus of the site a bit to make sure we can really do a good job of covering the things we kept around. We were getting a little thin before, trying to offer something for everyone. We've got a new sitemap here though, so you can see all the sections.
Buffalo Bill Reservoir sits just 5 miles west of Cody, Wyoming, but unless you are looking for it, you could drive through Cody heading north or south and never even know it is there. The reason is that the reservoirs sits on the other side of a narrow, very rocky canyon. When I say this is a narrow canyon, let me explain a bit more. Highway 20 going through the canyon had to be tunneled through the rocky canyon wall becuase the canyon is so narrow and so steep there wouldn't have been room otherwise.
Buffalo Bill Dam sits at the head of the canyon, a spot where the walls are so close together, the crest of this dam is only 200 feet wide. The ridge of rock that the Shoshone River carved its way through quickly falls away as the reservoir opens up, making this a very scenic reservoir.
