Wednesday and Thursday Update

Well, we decided to hang around the campground and West Yellowstone for the day on Wednesday. We went to an iMax movie about bears and Cheyenne went with us. It is hard to believe but she actually watched the movie and didn’t make a sound. We also walked around town and shopped a little. We cooked a big breakfast and simple dinner but also got some rest.

Now Thursday was a long day. We left the campground at 7:00AM, picked up some breakfast at McDonalds and headed for Cody, Wyoming. Had to drive from Western to Eastern entrance of Yellowstone and then about 53 miles further to get there but it was worth it. What a gorgeous drive!! The landscape there is totally different from that of Yellowstone. We also saw the old western town that is still in existence in Cody and visited the Buffalo Bill museum.

Charley is very interested in returning to Cody and spending a few days. One of the things he wants to do is spend more time in the museum. It is quite an interesting place and there is an awful lot to see and take in. Our visit was fairly quick so we were not able to really do it justice.
We had a nice lunch at the Wyoming Rib & Chop House before heading back. We did not get back to the campground until 6:15.

The kids are going horseback riding on Friday afternoon and we are staying in to get things ready for our departure on Saturday and get a few housekeeping chores taken care of.

Enjoy the pictures!!

And I could not resist sharing this rainbow with you from Tuesday night!! It was beautiful!!


  1. Beautiful shots of those rainbows! I've always regretted not taking the same drive you did from West Yellowstone to Cody, WY, when we were there. Oh well, one more thing to add to our list of places to see, I guess!

  2. Those rainbow pictures are beautiful!

  3. Ya'll are some really pretty country. We were up at Yellowstone last year and missed going to Cody. Will make it next trip. Pretty rainbows.
