After breakfast (an all-you-can-eat scrumptious buffet included with our room) we drove into Cody. We stopped at the dam ... I mean, the Buffalo Bill Dam (sorry, couldn't resist the immature dam joke). When you think about the effort it took to build that thing back in 1910 it is absolutely amazing. The girls stamped their National Park Passport books (thanks again, Grandma Roz). Paradis and I posed for this photo, thinking of my father who had to stop at every dam during my childhood road trips.
Next was McCullough Peaks. McCullough Peaks is a place where wild mustangs roam wild in the west and our goal was to see horses. We started off on a very rough road. I'm confident it was not made for a Chrysler Town & Country mini-van. But after losing Annelies to the back seat where she quickly fell asleep because her anxiety was so high thinking we would get stuck living with wild mustangs the rest of our lives, we turned around and found a better path.
The landscape out here reminds me of the Badlands in South Dakota.
It was a great day in Cody. Tomorrow we are off to Yellowstone!
