Today, the weather is much nicer. It is 18, but feels like 39. It is warm inside, so the heaters are taking a break. We hope Dad tells us we can put the slides back out tonight. It will be nice to have room again.
The folks took a trip to Lookout Mountain on Saturday. This is where Buffalo Bill is buried. Buffalo Bill was a performer. He started his career in 1872 and died in 1917. He traveled the world with his wild west show. The show included famous people such as Sitting Bull and Annie Oakley. Buffalo Bill treated Indians and women with great respect. He was an interesting man.
The drive to Lookout Mountain was very long. Mama wondered if anyone attended his funeral because it would be hard for people to get up that mountain especially in 1917. She found out that 20,000 people attended and there are pictures in the museum showing all the cars making the climb up the mountain.
The folks were surprised by the number of people riding bikes up the mountain. There is no way they could do that.
