    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.

    Did you go to the Cody museum? Cody is the only place in America that we have seen another CVO the same colour as ours

    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.

    Tag 29 - Ein Ruhiger

    July 6, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Wir haben den Tag ruhig angehen lassen, dann den Camper nochmal geöffnet, um ein paar Sachen rauszuholen und ihn auch nochmal zu trocknen, da er gestern beim Abbau an den Planen noch etwas feucht war. Etwas Arbeit - Aufgaben meiner Studenten, die gerade in Deutschland sind, bewerten. Dann gab's Mittag und dann sind wir kurz an Cody's Hauptstraße durch die Geschäfte gebummelt. Später ein Spaziergang mit dem (gut gebauten) Hund zum Fluss - wie auch letztes Jahr führt der noch tüchtig Wasser aus dem Yellowstone. Abendessen und dann ein Skype-Gespräch mit einer Kollegin. Noch etwas mit meiner Gastmutter fernsehen und das war Tag 29.Read more

    Tag 28 - Auf nach Wyoming

    July 5, 2019 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 17 °C

    Heute sind wir die längste Tagesstrecke der Reise gefahren. Daher ging es auch etwas früher los als sonst. Die Fahrt war angenehm - gutes Wetter, gute und freie Straßen und keine allzu langen und steilen Steigungen. Da ich die ganze Zeit gefahren bin und keine Fotos machen konnte, gibt es heute nur Fotos von unserem Mittagessen. Jetzt sind wir für ein paar Tage in Cody bei meiner Gastmutter, bevor es zurück nach Deutschland geht.Read more

    Heute haben wir gar nicht viel gemacht - draußen gesessen, nochmal kurz in den Laden gefahren, getankt, mit dem Hund spazieren gegangen und nach dem Abendessen noch Nachtisch essen gegangen. Und das war's auch schon.Read more
