The Wild Watch

Here in Cody Yellowstone, we have a passion for all things wild — and we want to share that passion with you. That’s why we’ve recruited local residents who embrace the wild nature of Northwest Wyoming to highlight the area’s incredible elements and opportunities through their lenses. They’ll take you closer to the authentic side of our region than ever before, highlighting the places — and moments — that make this place so special. They’re more than just ambassadors for our region — they’re our Wild Watch. Connect with us on social and follow #WildWatch to discover all that Cody Yellowstone has to offer.

Chris Guyer – Founder of Joyvagen

Magnetized by adventurous mountain biking, tough gravel roads and scenic rides surrounding the Bighorn Basin, Chris Guyer was pulled to Cody, a place he just couldn’t leave. With the intention of serving Cody’s community and spreading the love of biking, Chris founded Joyvagen, the place for “all things bike” in Cody.
For eight years, Chris and his dedicated team at Joyvagen have fostered the love of two wheels in this wonderful western town. Whether passing through or a seasoned local, stop by for a chat. We’d love to meet you.

Sara Wood – Founder of Wyoming Heritage Grains

Sara Wood is a Powell native living on the family farm outside of Ralston with her family. Her family settled in the area in the early 1900’s.
She founded Wyoming Heritage Grains in 2019, Wyoming’s only commercial flour mill.
Wyoming Heritage Grains focuses on ancient and heritage varieties of wheat and other grains. All flour is stone milled fresh to order.
They use regenerative practices to raise the grains. No-till, companion planting, and cover crops and cattle are some of the main tools used for soil health.
Many customers who are gluten sensitive are once again able to enjoy eating wheat.

Cody Cattle Company

Greg Pendley – Owner and Band Member
Ryan Martin- Band Leader

The band is full of renowned musicians who have certainly made a name for themselves throughout the years. You have a 3 time flat-pick guitar champion and Western Music Association Instrumentalist of the year, a musician that has played for Frank Sinatra, a keyboard player that started at the age of 4, a sax player who performed in Branson for 25 year; 5 of those with his own show, and an award winning bass player holding it all together.
The Cody Cattle Company was started in 2008. Ryan Martin started in 2009 and has been the glue for the music ever since.
Greg & Ann Pendley purchased the business in 2019 they used that year to learn the business, but by 2020 they knew they could add to the band and have been performing with Ryan since.
Each of these performers is also a vocalist, so you get great harmonies on top of the fabulous music. While they pay homage to the western classics, they also sing some 50’s, 60’s and even a little taste of classic rock throughout the show. You’ll be singing along, tapping your feet and chair dancing for the entire show.
With an all you can eat, delicious buffet to start the night, (and a full bar), followed by the great music, you have a fabulous evening waiting for you at The Cody Cattle Company.

Wayne's Boots

In 1959, a hometown boy, Wayne Lundvall, opened a small boot and shoe repair shop on Cody’s main street. That business grew and became Wayne’s Boot Shop. Wayne’s has provided quality footwear and repair services at the same location for over 60 years. Wayne and Barbra retired in 1996 and sold the business to son and daughter-in-law, Kevin and Kim Lundvall. Plans are in the works for the third generation, Eric and Kinsey Brooks, to step into the family business and continue the legacy.

Wyoming Mountain Guides

Zach Lentsch is an avid climber, guide, and owner of Wyoming Mountain Guides, a professional climbing guiding service that operates across the state of Wyoming. A Bighorn Basin native, Zach has been exploring wild parts of northern Wyoming for as long as he can remember. One of his first memories is getting lost in a blizzard while elk hunting with his dad at the age of three. He started climbing in his teens under the tutelage of his high school math teacher and was amazed to discover the incredible amount of world class rock, ice, and alpine climbing close to home.

Ben & Lindsay Anson

Ben and Lindsey Anson’s passion for agriculture and love of Wyoming’s rugged landscapes landed them at the Pitchfork Ranch six years ago. For the Ansons, Park County is the only place that feels like home. Summers are spent trailing cattle through the hearty grasses of the Absaroka Mountains, and winters are best-enjoyed ice fishing, skiing, or with a hot cup of coffee by the fireplace.

Amy Gerber

A recently retired teacher, Amy Gerber enthusiastically spends her new free time out “on the road,” capturing images documenting daily wildlife encounters and adventures in the amazing wild places around us. Living in Wyoming since 1993, she was drawn to this area because it represented one of the last great wild places in the lower 48 states, including the habitat for grizzly bears.
