29 Sep Round Up: Newly Released Audio Tour Celebrates Chief Joseph Scenic Byway in Cody, Wyoming
A new audio tour of the Chief Joseph Scenic Byway (also known as Wyoming Highway 296) near Cody, Wyoming is now available via the TravelStorys app. The approximately 45-mile tour includes 11 separate GPS-triggered scripts — or geotags — describing geology, wildlife habitat, fire ecology, historic sites, and more. Conveniently, when the tour is downloaded in advance, it doesn’t require active cell service.
“Listening to this new TravelStorys tour while you drive the Chief Joseph Scenic Byway is like having a knowledgeable and passionate guide in the car with you,” says Ryan Hauck, executive director of Cody Yellowstone, the marketing arm for the region that includes the towns of Cody, Powell, and Meeteetse; parts of the Shoshone National Forest; and a large swath of Yellowstone National Park. “There is so much more to this drive than our spectacular Wyoming scenery. Historical scenes such as the flight of the Nez Perce and stories about the plentiful wildlife that roam the region are highlighted in engaging detail.”
The free app is available at codyyellowstone.org. Other Cody Yellowstone audio tours include “Historic Downtown Cody,” “Cody to Yellowstone,” and “Hemingway Highways.”
