(Reminder: this post is being published well after our visit, we are currently in Portland Oregon until Sept 4th)
We got our first glimpse (and feel) of mountains as we left South Dakota and entered Wyoming. So weird to be driving with snow on the sides of the road on July 9th!
After driving most of the day, we arrived in Cody a couple of hours before the Buffalo Bill Museum closed. Several friends had said this was a not to be missed attraction. While it was interesting with displays about Buffalo Bill and his Wild West show (a la Ringling Brothers), and a moving (and disturbing) exhibit about the displacement of the native Americans, and a raptor talk, we both agreed that we were sure the relatively high price of admission was worth it.
However, we did enjoy our BBQ dinner that night!
