Yesterday I went on an Artist Date with myself. I've always wanted to visit the Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave. There is a sign visible from I-70 that I've noticed EVERY time I've passed by. I remember hearing some good things about the museum, and when I saw a swap about photographs of interesting graves, I thought, what better time to visit Buff Bill's grave and snap some photos.
I was a bit disappointed in the grave. It sounds silly I know, but I was envisioning something a little more remarkable for the flamboyant and loved performer. Maybe something beaded by his Native companions? I'm not sure what I was expecting exactly, but this is all I got:
Still cool - but just not what my over active imagination had in mind.
However, there were spectacular views of the mountains, of Golden, and of Denver.
The grave is free to visit. Adjacent to the plot is a little museum which only cost an adult $5 (its even less for kiddos). And this is a little GEM that is really worth the mention. Since I just took photographs and didn't take notes, I will let the photos do most of the talking.
