August 12, Craters of the Moon NM to Cody WY

Today was primarily a driving day with a goal of getting east. The route was US 20 to Idaho Falls and then on to Yellowstone NP. We went thru the park without stopping, but did get to see a bunch of Bison on the way.

The drive from the east entrance of Yellowstone to Cody was quite beautiful with some interesting mountain and rock formations. Appartently this drive was Teddy Roosevelts favorite in the west.

When we arrived in Cody we decided to stay for two nights, so we can spend some time in the Buffalo Bill Western Museum here which is supposed to be quite good. Tonight we went downtown and had dinner in the Irma Hotel, which was built by Buffalo Bill, and watched a reencactment of a gunfight featuring who else, but Buffalo Bill. As you can tell Buffalo Bill Cody is a big deal in Cody Wyoming.
