Buffalo is a trove of history and a hospitable little town in the foothills below Big Horn Pass. Here cattle barons who wanted free grazing and homesteaders who wanted to build fences fought it out in the Johnson County War of 1892. Nearby are the sites of several skirmishes between the U.S. military and Native Americans along the Bozeman Trail. Buffalo is 182 miles due west on I–90 of Sturgis, South Dakota. The first
week of every August, Sturgis hosts a very popular and legendary bikers’ conclave. So, if you’re passing through at this time of year, don’t be surprised to hear the occasional roar of hogs.
