Day 3!

Today we made it to Cody! It's as western of a town as I imagined, quite a bit like West Yellowstone, but with the addition of all the Buffalo Bill Cody history. :)

Tomorrow? We'll be at Hawkeye Ranch in the morning, checking it all out. Wish us luck!

Driving through the South Pass in the Rockies this morning. 19 Degrees and gusting wind and snow, with black ice on the side of the road. Very beautiful, and very scary.

We stopped at Boysen Reservoir to get Indy some serious exercise after being cooped up in the car.

In Thermopolis, at the Hot Springs park, we saw the first Bison of our trip.

Three days and 1400 miles later, we finally made it to Cody!

This Chandelier was hanging in the Hotel Irma (the existing bar is historical - it was given to Buffalo Bill Cody by Queen Victoria - very cool). I thought the chandelier was awesome (the antler one) and especially loved the completely tin ceiling.

Since there's no Motel 6 in Cody, we've upgraded to the Super 8 - which is really very nice, and still Indy friendly - they don't charge any extra fees for a dog! Woohoo!

Check back tomorrow for photos and news from HAWKEYE!


  1. You're almost "home!" and brrr to all the snow and ice. Drive safely!

    The kids and I are camping in Eastern Oregon this summer and I have vague thoughts of trying to work in a trip to see you guys after. It's probably nuts, but I'm scheming nonetheless :)

    I can't wait to see the photos and hear all about your first impressions when you arrive!
