Here's a diagram we drew of Frontier Park. Not everything is mentioned or shown, but it still provides a handy point of reference.

Overview of Frontier Park.

The Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Museum is located on the east side of Frontier Park. The museum is open all year round, not just during the Frontier Days Rodeo. It's a fascinating, fun, museum to tour and we definitely recommend stopping in if you get a chance.

This is the view from the north end of the racetrack, facing south. To the right (west) is B Stand. In front of B Stand is the racetrack, then, just out of sight to the left (east), is the arena. Catch pens and other pens (not shown) are to the photographer's left.

This is how it looks from the south end of the racetrack, facing north. To the left (west) is B Stand. In front of B Stand is the racetrack, then, just out of sight to the right (east), is the arena. The path on the right-hand side of the photo, between the racetrack and the arena, leads to the photo pit.

This photo was taken from inside the arena, facing west directly at B stand. At 7:30am there were volunteers, many more than seen in the photo, cleaning the stands from the concert the night before.

The Cheyenne Frontier Days bucking chutes as seen from inside of the arena, facing east. Behind them is East Stand. Notice that the chutes are numbered 0 through 00, and that there is not a number 9 bucking chute. There is a number 9 chute, however. See the photo after this one.

Chute 9 at Cheyenne is the timed event chute. This is how it looks from inside the arena (facing south). East Stand is to the left (east) and B Stand is to the right (west).

Here is a shot of Cheyenne Frontier Days' famous photo pit. Photo taken from the arena, with back to the bucking chutes, facing west. Behind the photo pit is the racetrack, then B Stand.

Here's kind of a bird's eye view of things. Above Chute 9 (which is the timed event chute at the south end of the arena) was a small covered seating area with a sign that said "Jack's Roost." This photo was taken from Jack's Roost. To the left (west) is B stand, then (moving right) the race track, a narrow path that leads to the photo pit, then the arena. The bucking chutes and East Stand are out of sight to the right (East). The blue arrow is pointing to the photo pit. The yellow arrow is pointing to a long gate between the arena and the racetrack.

Here's a view from Jack's Roost showing the opposite side of the arena than the photo above. The yellow arrow is pointing to the bucking chutes. Above the bucking chutes is East Stand.

On the back side of East Stand (which is the east side) are livestock pens and the east side of the racetrack. While they can't be seen in the photo, beneath East Stand are concessions, restrooms, the Cowboy Ready Area, a medic station for the contestants, and other facilities.

On the backside of East Stand a few broncs were moved to a different pen.

Feeling good in the morning air, they took off for the fun of it.

In the pens behind East Stand we noticed Harry Vold's famous bronc, Painted Valley.

Standing on the stairs behind East Stand you can see the bulls and broncs in the livestock pens. The buildings at the top of the photo are the backside of Wild Horse Gulch (mentioned below).

Moving east from East Stand you leave the arena and racetrack and enter Wild Horse Gulch, an area for vendors that's lined with trees and old-west style building fronts.

This sign lets you know you're entering Wild Horse Gulch.
