Nowood Cutoff Magnetic Anomaly

The Nowood Cutoff is known in our family as the shortcut from Tensleep to Basin, useful when traveling from the east side of the Bighorns to Greybull or Cody.  It’s a highway from Tensleep along the Nowood River to Manderson, where the Nowood dumps into the Big Horn River and the highway meets the Worland to Greybull Highway

I hear there is an annual music festival on the Nowood, reminding one of Woodstock.  Or the opposite thereof.

I used this road a lot in the early 1990s to save time traveling to Cody.  I had a hot Volvo turbo and once I raced a Pontiac with a big V8 through Nowood at speeds exceeding 100 mph; yes it was irresponsible, but the danger was mainly to a few cows.  This is a low traffic road.

In 1998 we were bringing my niece and nephew from Texas back from Yellowstone Park in early August, motoring along the Nowood, when we met a few bikers taking a diversion from the Black Hills biker rendezvous.  The kids went nuts, it was red-headed Dennis Rodman and a few of his basketball cronies blowing by on their Harleys.

A few years ago I went to a music festival in Buffalo and heard Jalan Crossland play; he grew up in Tensleep.  Talented he is, but a bit quirky.

Then there is Hyattville, just a few miles east of the Nowood.  This could be quirky too.  Paintrock Creek and Medicine Lodge Creek.

How many weird events are required to designate a place as exhibiting anomalous vibrations?
