From Denver to Yellowstone
Sights Along the Way
Recently, we drove from Denver to Yellowstone, which is roughly 500 miles. While Yellowstone is the grand destination, there are lots of must see items along the way. If you drive from Denver to Yellowstone, you can make this an epic road trip into the great west.
Wyoming Welcome Center
On the way up, we stopped at the Wyoming Welcome Center. It houses a small, but interesting and informative museum. There you will see the skeletal remains of the first mammoth discovered in Wyoming, as well as, unique displays of life in early Wyoming. It was well maintained and a lot of fun. They have brochures of all the fun places and things to do in Wyoming and what I found to be very interesting were the Wyoming Travel Guides printed in different languages!
Little Big Horn National Monument
Little Big Horn National Monument in Montana was a great stop and nothing like I expected. The straight rows of white tombstones at the National Cemetery of those from Montana who served this country was both impressive and humbling. There were massive monument tributes to both Native American and Calvary Soldiers who lost their lives during the battle for Big Horn and even the horses who perished had a monument. I could feel the sadness of that day as I gazed over the battlefield. There is so much more there to see than I ever imagined and extremely glad we made that stop.
Buffalo Bill Museum
On the way back, we also made time to stop in Cody, Wyoming to visit the Buffalo Bill Museum. That place was amazing and filled with everything about Buffalo Bill Cody and tons of other items from a massive display of guns to Teddy Roosevelt’s saddle! There is so much to see there that you need to spend the entire day!
