Beautiful Drive from Yellowstone to Cody!!!

Aug 6, Thursday, We leave Yellowstone after a week/8 Days of Fun enjoying the area. I know we have missed some parts of the park, so we will have to come back some day. We leave at 9 am head to West Yellowstone at an RV park to dump and fill up with water. We enter the park to head for the east entrance. We pass the Eagles'nest one more time, traffic is always backed up for 2-3 miles and takes 1/2 hour to pass. Then onto Yellowstone Lake for a pull-off for a short lunch break,boy I love the scenery here. Water splashing against the shoreline for a bit of natures' musical beat. more pictures.

Then up..up..a mountain to go over Sylvan Pass over 10,000 feet up ...what a view of Yellowstone !!! Then here we go least 10 miles without the foot on the gas pedal...just breaks to slow down. Some guard rails are broken thru..wonder what happen?? Then thru the east gate..100 miles so far..took 3-4 hours. We pass lots of campgrounds in the wilderness before Cody.

We pass the Buffalo Bill Dam thru 3 tunnels thru solid rock mountains..beautiful tunnels with rock formations inside. We arrive into Cody, stopping 1st at Visitor Center for maps and camp info. We find the campground (Absaroka Bay RV Park) at the other end of Cody. 99 sites with all pull thru..w/e/s & wi-fi.. yeah... yeah!! We set up then drive around deciding what to do for the next 4 days. Balloon Rally, Buffalo Bill Museum, Shopping/groceries/ , Drive the Beartooth Highway, Dan Miller Cowboy Show(Great Show) , Dinner at Buffalo Bill's Hotel (great lunch buffet), oil change,haircuts, Etc.

Aug 7, Friday, I wake up at 5:30 am (yes thats right!!) and drive to the park to see the Balloons lift off..Too windy this does tether for a while. Also it is stormy at 4-5 pm too so No Balloons today. Maybe tomorrow?? We ate at the hotel Buffet todays lunch, then both of us got haircuts, off to the Dam for a tour/film. Then back to rest before tonights "Dan Miller Show" in the old movie theater,great show and entertainers. Quick stop at McDonalds for a sundae treat, back to camp..zzzzzzzzzzzzz
