    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.

    Yellowstone 2

    August 15 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Heutige Attraktion sind die Mammoth Hot Springs!
    Es heißt warten um einen Parkplatz zu bekommen, dann geht es mit vielen anderen Touristen über kurze beplankte Wege.
    Lange Wanderwege findet man hier nur schwer!
    Aber trotzdem war auch dieser ein toller Tag an dem, wie wir finde, wirklich schöne Bilder entstanden sind!😊Read more

    Tag 2 Yellowstone

    July 29 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Früh aufgestanden gings nach dem Frühstück wieder über den Sylvanpass in den Yellowstone. Morgens noch recht kühl, fing es etwa 1.5h später auch noch leicht an zu tröpfeln. Gute 10 Meilen später wars aber vorbei, das Regenzeug haben wir auch nicht angezogen. Es ging vorbei am Old Faithful zur Grand Prismatic Spring. Der gut gefüllte Parkplatz war mit den Motorrädern kein Problem, direkt auf der No Parking Beschriftung parkiert und auf zur Grand Prismatic Spring. Leider war morgens die Sicht noch durch zusätzlichen Dampf etwas erschwert, trotzdem konnte man die Grösse (75x91m) erkennen. Weiter gings zum Norris Geyser Becken. Unterwegs noch ein paar Stopps am Firehole Lake Drive und an den Gibbon Falls. Am Norris Geyser Becken haben eine grosse Runde gedreht und viele der Geysire und heissen Quellen fotografiert. Mittlerweile haben wir schon viele davon gesehen und man merkte dass bei allen nicht mehr die gleich grosse Begeisterung wie gestern vorhanden war. Danach gings noch Richtung Yellowstone Canyon, den wir relativ zügig erreichten. Wir wollten eigentlich nur kurz die Lower Falls anschauen, waren dann jedoch in einer Einbahnstrasse und haben dann halt den ganzen North Rim befahren. Die Grösse der Schlucht ist leider kaum auf die Kamera zu kriegen. Jedoch wird klar woher der Name Yellowstone kommt. Anschliessend gings zurück Richtung Hotel via Hayden Valley. Wir wollten noch ein Foto vom Yellowstone River machen als uns plötzlich auffiel dass auf der anderen Seite ein Bison graste. Kurz darauf setzte er sich in Bewegung und kam durch den Fluss direkt auf uns zu. Sofort war die Parklücke und Strasse voll von Autos und der Bison ging direkt vor uns an unseren Motorrädern vorbei und zwischen den Autos über die Strasse. Nach diesem Nervenkitzel gings endgültig wieder nach Wapiti zu unserem MotelRead more

    Driving through Yellowstone

    August 8 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C

    Toda we drove through Yellowstone. We took the West Entrance and our first aim was Canyon Village where the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone is located. Then we drove trough Hayden Valley where a lot of bisons can be seen but one bison decided to come directly to us.
    We visited a lot of thermal attractions and in the end we went to Old Faithful which blows a lot of Water in to the clouds every 90 minutes.

    Wir sind heute durch den Yellowstone gefahren. Vom Westeingang war Canyon Village unser erstes Ziel wo man den Grande Canyon vom Yellowstone finden kann. Danach sind wir durch das Hayden Valley gefahren wo eine Riesen Herde von Bisons unterwegs war aber einer meinte es gut mit uns und er kam bis auf 2 Meter an unser Auto heran.
    Wir haben viele Hotspots aufgesucht wo man schnell merkt welche Urgewalt unter dem Boden steckt. Zum Schluss haben wir dann Old Faithful besucht, der alle 90 Minuten eine Riesen Wasser Fontaine in den Himmel schießt.

    Grand Canyon of Yellowstone

    August 28 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Wir sind von “Brink Lower Falls” nach “Lower Yellowstone Falls” runter gelaufen und auch wieder hoch. Hier hatten wir von den Wasserfällen einen fantastischen Ausblick auf den “Grand Canyon of Yellowstone”*. Das war auch ein Highlight.
