We were in Colorado in January. On the road back from Vail to Denver, we stopped on Lookout Mountain. Buffalo Bill asked to be buried here because if you look west you see the Rockies, and if you look east the Great Plains are spread out in front of you.

There is a long-running East End legend to the effect that scrap dealer David 'Nav' Bow was a Native American Indian who stayed behind after one of Buffalo Bill Cody's two visits to Glasgow.
I can now reveal following extensive research into the Bow family's genealogy that this is absolutely not the case. The Bows appear to have come from Ireland and intermarried with Romanies, which fully accounts for Nav's swarthy appearance.
The nickname started out as a joke and I have spoken to one of his relatives who is even able to name the man who gave it to him.
