It was early afternoon when we arrived in Sundance. We checked into the Rodeway Inn for two nights.
Sundance is a town in Crook County. The town is named for the Sun Dance ceremony practiced by several Native American Indian tribes.
However, I know it from the movie, ' Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid'. The Sundance Kid was a real person. After his release from the town jail in 1888, Harry Longabaugh, an outlaw and member of Butch Cassidy's Wild Bunch, acquired the moniker, "the Sundance Kid".

Next stop Devil's Tower.
