Aug 18, 2013 - Cody WY

Not a lot to report today as it was mostly a drive day. We pulled away from the Mobil station before 10:00 and were into the park and on our way toward the East Entrance and today’s destination of Cody. The trip across the park was slowed a bit by a fire that has been burning south of Hayden Valley, but with the hot and windy weather of the last few days it has blown up and is heading for the road from Canyon Village to Fishing Bridge – which of course was today’s route. When we passed through this morning it had gotten to within a mile of...

Aug 5, 2013 - East Side of Yellowstone Park

This park was right on the river. The kids were really excited to get into the water. It was actually quite warm and I didn't disagree. We went right to the edge of the water and it was private property! So we hopped in the truck and went down a few miles to a state park and let the kids swim for a while. The water was quite cold, but they had a good time. Tomorrow we take the RV through Yellowstone and park on the west side. This is the side we will do all our touring from.

Aug 4, 2013 - Elk and Bison and Bears, oh my

Well, Yogi didn't disappoint us yesterday as we had a wonderful day driving the loops of Yellowstone and stopping frequently to view all the wonders of this park. The grizzly was across a meadow but with the video camera on zoom I was able to get some great footage. The bison stopped traffic for awhile taking his time to cross the street and then just sat down to rest for a photo shoot. We saw so many gorgeous waterfalls, some were mighty powerful, stopped at hot sulfur springs, and bubbling mud volcanos but my favorite was the wildlife. I...

On The Road Again

Jul 31, 2013 - Chief Joseph Hwy.

We had gotten to the end of the road at Barry's Landing and were actually in Montana at that point but had to backtrack to Wyoming to continue our trip. We stopped in Cody Wy at the Sierra trading post and Bill bought me some new hiking shoes and a fleece for my upcoming birthday. We continued north on the Chief Joseph hwy up to about 9000 feet. It was starting to get late (4:00 pm) so we looked for a forest service road to camp. We saw aturnoff for Camp Creek road and took it. After a relatively scary 3 miles up the side of a mt with no...

Jul 25, 2013 - On To Cody Wyoming

On the way to Cody, we met a bit of a plains rain. For the first time, we were hit with the occurence of hail and high wind. Once again the Range was heavy and we didn't have any problem with the wind save to avoid other cars careening on the dirt and asphalt black roads in Wyoming. But the sky lightened and turn from deep gray to a clearing blue just at sunset. We turned around and found the rainbow in the rearview mirror. This is one my favorite pictures primarily because Dee likes it so much. Taken on the side of the road in a pullover...

Jul 21, 2013 - Cody, Wyoming

We spent a week in Cody, Wyoming. We visited the museum dedicated to William F. Cody, known as Buffalo Bill. He was a Pony Express rider, an Army scout, and an entrepreneur like no other in my opinion. The city of Cody was planned by him to have streets wide enough for him to turn his carriage around, and to be on the road to the new National Park, Yellowstone. We spent 2 days at the museum, and on the second day, we attended a wild bird exhibition. The city and surrounding area is so beautiful, we could have spent more time at the museum,...

Jul 21, 2013 - Rex Hale, Cody & Buffalo Bill Byway, WY - Aug 2013

We pulled up to Rex Hale Campground in the Shoshone National Forest along the Buffalo Bill Scenic Byway. I fell in love. I hated to leave this place. For $10 a nite w/geezer national access pass, we had 50 amp & water. No sewer or dump. It is located almost 40 miles east of Cody, WY and only 15 miles from the East Entrance to Yellowstone. I would stay here again in a heart beat! Wait till you see what our front yard looks like. Even though the campground is close to the road, it was not noisy. We have been in prettier or better campground,...

Jul 10, 2013 - Fishing Bridge RV Park, Yellowstone

I wasn’t able to update the blog yesterday. I had no cell service, and no internet. We arrived at Yellowstone in time for lunch and settled in to our campsite before heading out to tour after lunch. We enjoyed sightseeing around the park and then dinner at the Lake Village Hotel. I’ve included a few pictures of the hotel which is an historic landmark. After dinner we went buffalo hunting, and found lots of them. Several times be were tied up in Buffalo jams, as cars stopped and moved over to allow buffalo to wander across or even down the...

Jul 9, 2013 - Cody, again

Today Glenna, Dudley, and I took the trolley tour. It was well worth the time. We got a much better understanding of the town of Cody. Buffalo Bill planned the town right from the beginning. His plan included wide roads, so people could turn their team of horses around on the streets. His hotel was one of the first buildings in Cody. He planned the eastern route into Yellowstone National Park, and put his town in a position that meant every visitor coming from the east would pass through Cody. This area was a desert when Cody arrived. He...

Jul 8, 2013 - KOA Cody, Wyoming

We had an easy drive from Billings south to Cody. The views were extraordinary. We are at the KOA in Cody tonight. It is a long way down the list of KOA's that we have stayed at. It is very hot, and got very windy this evening while we enjoyed drinks with our neighbours, visiting from California. This afternoon we visited the Buffalo Bill Museum. It is an amazing exhibit. It was very worthwhile. Tomorrow we hope to do the town trolley tour, and return to the museum for another lesson about Buffalo Bill. I posted a picture of a map of the...
