Scenic West in Wyoming

Sunny cloudless skies made our drive through the Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone picture perfect. Eric's Golden Age Pass -$10- covers entry fees throughout the United States and makes our park visits not a bargain but a wonderful gift from our Government!

Stops at the Jackson Lodge for lunch were super photo opps...and on to Yellowstone. Again, highway crews were hard at work...yet the dust increased the 'Wild West' flavor. Deep canyons, towering fir trees, and Yellowstone Lake led us north and west towards Cody. As we left the park, fir trees disappeared and red rock cliffs began to tower. Ranches dot the arid landscapes.

Later in Cody, we walked about the town...saloons, cowboy boots and hats, and cigarettes make it clear we're not Back East.

This morning we're off to Buffalo Bill's Museum. More later...
