This week’s broadcast of Eye on Travel is from the historic Chamberlin Inn in Cody, Wyoming, and perhaps the best Western town in America. I have all the global travel updates. Then Al Simpson, Former three-term U.S. Senator from Wyoming, and his brother, Professor Pete Simpson, in an extended conversation about their hometown, their heritage, and why Cody perseveres as part of the distinct culture of America. Historian Sam Lightner Jr., and author of Wyoming: A History of the American West, with the latest report on overtourism in national parks like Yellowstone and how to visit properly, as well as some true, underappreciated hidden gems of Wyoming. And then a report on one of the more incredible, truly American museums — the Buffalo Bill Center of the West — it’s been around since 1917. And outdoor photographer Amy Gerber on her love affair with bears, and how she gets up close and personal with grizzlies (see photo). There’s all this and more on this week’s Eye on Travel.
