    True Wild West, Cody WY

    June 26, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 16 °C

    Cody is a wild west town steeped in history and named after Buffalo Bill Cody who developed the town and poured significant amounts of money into it. The hospitality here is second to none and the towns people are extremely proud of what they have.
    Noela and I started the day with breakfast at Granny’s a great traditional diner with really wholesome and good value meals. From there we singlehandedly tried to add to the Cody economy as we found some great western outfitters for shoes , boots and clothing. A mandatory visit to Cody Harley Davidson and a coffee at a genuine espresso coffee shop.
    Carl and Paola headed back into Yellowstone to Mammoth Springs and Roosevelt to chase down more of the elusive bears in the area and returned having seen 3 bear at various distances.
    We all joined a tour at 3.00pm that ran for an hour. The tour was on a trolley bus and gave a very informative talk on the history, the population and the economy, again highlighting the pride that the locals have in their town.
    Tonight, we will witness a mock gunfight at the Hotel Irma Bill Cody’s old Saloon and hotel before heading over to the stampede stadium to see the daily Rodeo. Cody claims to be the rodeo capital of America.
    Then its time to hit the road again and move into Montana and Washington state.

    More to come on the Rodeo.

    Rodeo Time, Cody WY

    June 26, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 16 °C

    Shoot out at the hotel Irma was a bit corny but they re-enacted a shoot out with Butch Cassidy and Wyatt Earp. There was a big crowd and it certainly entertained the kids.

    One of our things to do in Cody was the rodeo that is held every night in summer. We were picked up by the Cody rodeo bus and taken to the rodeo grounds on the western end of town. We had great sets directly over the shoots.

    It was an entertaining night with several Aussies competing so they received a special cheer. If you ever go to Cody this is a must do event.

    Geysers and geesers, Yellowstone NP

    June 25, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 21 °C

    Jackson is some 50 miles South of Yellowstone NP so we got an early start as there was plenty of things that we wanted to see on this visit. Our first encounter for the day was a group of Bison right next to the road, several cars were parked too close to them and the Bison soon spooked. We can see why people get gored by them given the amazing turn of speed and agility that a couple of them displayed, one even jumping a fence,
    We continued into the Teton NP and then to the South entrance of Yellowstone NP in good time. We again were thankful for the annual park pass that we purchased on day one this pass has saved us a couple of hundred dollars already.
    Our first stop was at West Thumb where we walked a board walk around a collection of small pools of geo thermal activity. This site bordered the lake and these vents were even in the lake bubbling their hot water into the freezing lake water. We were pretty amazed by this but there was bigger to come.
    We headed into Yellowstone village where most people just go to see “Old Faithful”, I had read about another location at the back of this geyser, so we took that boardwalk that went for about 1.5 miles. Absolutely stunning views and geology with water filled vents bubbling and boiling with different colours based on the bacteria or minerals present. There literally hundreds of these and they all had views to old faithful which as an added bonus erupted whilst we were there.
    Our trip continued taking in other sites like Black Sand basin, Fountain Paint Pot, Grand prismatic Springs, The Mud Volcano, The Sulphur Caldron, Firehole Canyon Drive along with other stops to view water falls, rapids and canyons. All of these sites offered something different and were on the southern loop road. We stopped for a late lunch at Canyon Village and then moved into the Hayden Valley our exit road to Cody Wyoming. Bison grazed in the fields, more photos were taken and we ooed and ahhed at the vistas. We came around a bend with a group of vehicles parked and all of a sudden, the car exploded with the shout of GRIZZLY and eagle eyes Noela spotted the elusive beast on a distant ridge. It was a long way off but still close enough to identify. After 15 minutes of bear gazing we continued and soon enough we exited the park.
    Our drive continued, and we recapped the day like kids on a school excursion just near the town of Witica it happened, another innocuous group of cars. There she was another Grizzly along with her two cubs blissfully feeding with the cubs playing. This time though she was 50 to 75 metres away, close enough to make sure that while taking photos you had a clear escape path. We must have been there for about 45 minutes until some peanut drove his car up to them and upset mum. Carl did not want to leave but we dragged him kicking a and screaming back to the car.
    Finally, we got to Cody at around 6.45 feeling pretty happy with the days events. But guess where Carl and Paola are going back to tomorrow morning………….Yawn, see you tomorrow.

    Cody, Whyoming

    August 27, 2015 in the United States ⋅

    Rano nas cekal presun zpet do Yellowstonu. Dve hodky jizdy utekly jako voda a dneska cheme objet horni yellowstonsky okruh. Vecer mame v planu rodeo v Cody, Whyoming a tak jsme celou cestu propocitavali v kolik z jake vyhlidky musime vyjet abychom to vse stihli.

    Je opravdu zajimave jak je Yellowstone rozmanity. Opet jsme meli pocit, jako kdyby jsme vjeli do uplne jineho narodniho parku. Hezka priroda, mohutne hory, bublajici jezirka a gejziry. Videli jsme i kaskadova lavova jezirka, ktere Adelce pripominali chorvatske Pamukale.

    Vse jsme stihali naprosto presne dle naseho casoveho harmonogramu. Je zde spoustu k videni a ruznych zastavek, takze jsme meli plan pripraveny na minuty. Pri odjezdu z parku nas zastihlo mohutne krupobiti. Nic takoveho jsem v zivote nevidel a fotka zde asi dostatecne nevystihuje co se delo. Behem 2 minut se vytvorila asi dvou centimetrova vrstva snehu/krup na silnici. Ridime se dle hesla, ze nejrychlejsi je auto z pujcovny a jedeme i pres tento necas k mestecku Cody. Na silnici jedeme uplne sami jelikoz ostatni auta zastavuji a snazi se bouri preckat, my na to v nasem casovem planu nemame misto.

    Presne v 7PM se dostavame k Cody Stampade, tedy stadionu urcenemu pro rodeo. Nakupujeme cowboysky klobouk, korale a jeste se fotime na bykovi. Show zacina a je naprosto uzasna. Ruzne vekove kategorie, holky i kluci, se stridaji ve vsech rodeo disciplinach. Od jezdeni na divokych mustanzich, soutezi ve svazovani telatek az po opravdove rodeo na ruzzurenych bycich. Adelka zavira oci pri situaci, kdy se asi deseti lety chlapec sviji v bolestech po zasahu bykem do nohy pri neuspenem pokusu se na nem udrzet po dobu 8 sekund. Rodeo bylo jednoznacne “highligh” dne a urcite to stoji za to videt na vlastni oci.

    Jeste nejsme uplne unaveni a tak si “najizdime” dve ste mil k Mt. Rushmore, kam se chystame zitra. Motel nachazime za $59 ve mestecku Sharidon. Usiname asi behem jedne minuty. Je to hrozne, clovek si na dovolene vubec neodpocine. Ale i presto je to tady uzasne.

    Tag 11- Yellowstone/ Cody

    July 15, 2017 in the United States ⋅

    Heute ging es ganz früh los in den Yellowstone Nationalpark. Wir haben den Park einmal umrundet. Zuerst sind wir zum Geysir "Old Faithful" gefahren. Dieser spritz jede 1 1/2 Stunden eine Wasserfontäne nach oben und man sieht die ganze Zeit Dampf aufsteigen. Anschließend ging es weiter auf einen kleinen Spaziergang zu heißen Quellen und Schlammquellen. Dann ging unsere Fahrt weiter durch das "Hayden Valley" gefahren und konnten sogar 2 Bisonherden sehen und einzelne männliche Tiere. Da hatten wir echt Glück da es kurz vorher heftig geregnet hatte und so kamen sie aus ihren " Verstecken". Und der letzte Stop war bei dem Grand Canyon von Yellowstone mit einem sehr imposanten Wasserfall.

    Unsere Fahrt hat heute in der zweiten Cowboystadt geendet und zwar in Cody. Dort gibt es noch echte Rodeos und eine kleine "Schießereivorführung". Gegessen haben wir in einen Restaurant mit deutschen Essen- was natürlich nicht so wirklich lecker bzw. deutsch war obwohl die Besitzer aus Hessen und Bayern kommen. Aber wie Salzbretzel und Senf zusammen passen weis ich auch nicht. Begleitet wurde unser Essen durch richtig alten deutschen Schlager.
