Oh, dear, I have really fallen behind on my blogging. It is now September 21, and we are in Buffalo, Wyoming, headed slowly eastward toward Devils Tower, Black Hills, etc. I will try to be more disciplined - as if it really matters.... Best wishes to everyone! THE BASICS We stayed a night in Bozeman en route to Yellowstone. Our drive through the mountains and river of the Gallatin Valley was gorgeous. We settled in at Mountainside KOA in West Yellowstone. Next day, we drove the upper loop of Yellowstone: held up by construction for less than a half hour, strolled around Mammoth Hot Springs, walked among the geysers at Norris Basin. Rain the next day, so we stayed put except for going out for breakfast and strolling around West Yellowstone. Then we drove the lower ... read more

It could have been the cold, the unnerving traffic of the last two days, or having ridden 5,000km in two weeks, but by the time we got to Cody, a small town in northern Wyoming, I was knackered. We decided to pull in early and got into our hotel room at 2.30pm. By 2.35pm I was sound asleep. I slept for the next three hours and Andrew made the wise call to have a rest day here the following day. We had an extra day to get to Sturgis as he had booked accommodation for the wrong night. The second accommodation kerfuckle in as many weeks. I was about to revoke his travel booking status, but his error turned out to be a blessing. A rest day! I had packed a skirt for just such an ... read more

Geo: 44.5264, -109.056It seems to be a relatively easy task to get a street named after you these days but to have an entire town named for you is a bit of a big deal. Cody, Wyoming was founded by its favourite son- Buffalo Bill Cody. William Frederick "Buffalo Bill" Cody was an American scout, bison hunter, and showman. He was born in Iowa but he lived for several years in his father's hometown in Canada (so we have some claim on him). Back in the U.S., he started working at the age of eleven, after his father's death, and became a rider for the Pony Express at age 14 (Leila E. is 14 and I think she just skis and hangs around on the boat??). During the American Civil War, he served the Union from ... read more

Myself and two friends traveled to Yellowstone National Park. It was gorgeous. While in Yellowstone, we saw bears, deer, and buffalo. No coyotes, although we were told they roamed in the northern and western parts of the park. Our travels started as we headed out of Katy, TX on July 3rd. It took us three days to finally arrive in Cody, WY. States traveled through consisted of TX, CO, AZ, KS, and WY. On the way back home, we actually took a different route. Hope you enjoy all of the pictures! :-) My next trip will be Flagstaff, AZ. It is beautiful up there! Libby (KatyGurl)... read more

Rather than searching for a place to eat breakfast, we ate in the motel. As expected, it was pricey and not really very good. Today was the day we decided to see Old Faithful. Unfortunately, a bridge on the road to that part of the park was closed for the season so they could repair it before the winter snows. The detour added an hour to the trip making it over 3 hours from Cody to Old Faithful. It was a beautiful ride, however, so I won't complain. We stopped at Canyon City to get more souvenirs. (can you ever get enough?) We got there about an hour and a half before Old Faithful was scheduled to erupt, so we decided to get lunch while we were waiting. As did everyone else in the park, including ... read more

Because we would be entering Yellowstone three separate days, (two to visit and one on way to Grand Tetons) I decided to take the scenic Chief Joseph road north to the Park's northeast entrance. It was a quite a bit longer than entering through the east entrance, but we would see parts of the park we wouldn't otherwise get an opportunity to see. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't cooperative and we couldn't see very much during the first hour or so because clouds covered the mountaintops. The parts of the mountains that we were able to see were very beautiful. After we crossed the mountain pass the sky was clear and the view was breathtaking. We stopped at the Lower Falls of the Yellowstone river to take some pictures. To get to the falls we had to ... read more

2014 09 08 Day 7 We left the motel a 8:09 and stopped for breakfast in Spearfish. The first hour or so of the ride was the same flat, straight, boring ride that we had become accustomed to in South Dakota. The ride was made a little easier because we listened to the audio play “The Best Man” by Gore Vidal. I enjoyed the play very much and it made the ride much easier. After a couple of hours into Wyoming, the scenery became very un-boring. Approaching the mountains is an awesome experience. They begin as a small bump on the horizon that steadily increases in size as you get nearer, and when you reach them, they tower over you in overwhelming majesty. As you drive up the mountain, the land below recedes until you can't ... read more
