The town of Deadwood was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1967 and preserves the history and legends of the Wild West from its beginnings as a mining town. Our brief tour of the town takes us along the same streets walked by Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane. We’ll also visit Boot Hill, the final resting place of some of Deadwood’s famous citizens. Crossing Wyoming today we come to Devils Tower National Monument. Towering 1,267 feet above Belle Fourche River, this looming monolith served as the backdrop for the classic Steven Spielberg film Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Meals: B, D
Day 4  Buffalo Bill Territory
We travel today across the expansive Bighorn Mountains, where cowboys still graze their flocks of sheep and herds of cattle as in days of the Old West. As legendary as the sweeping plains and towering mountains of the Old West were, so were the grand personalities that became drawn to the frontier. At the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, you’ll encounter some of these historic figures, including Bill himself, the renowned sharpshooter Annie Oakley and Indian chief Sitting Bull before we arrive in Yellowstone National Park, our home for the next two nights. Meal: B

Next we’ll travel through Dunraven Pass and Tower Junction to the terraced formations of Mammoth Hot Springs. Finally, we’ll explore Norris Geyser Basin, filled with an incredible variety of steam vents, mud pots, geysers, and hot springs, before returning to our park lodge for dinner this evening. Meals: B, D
Day 6  Old Faithful and Grand Teton National Park
Continuing our tour of Yellowstone National Park, we'll head for storied Old Faithful Geyser, named for its regular eruptions about every 80 to 90 minutes for some 150 years. Next, traveling along Rockefeller Memorial Parkway into magnificent Grand Teton National Park, we'll drive alongside lovely Jackson and Jenny Lakes, visit the Chapel of the Transfiguration, while, of course, enjoying splendid views of the rugged, towering Tetons along the way.
