tent city...so much for peace and quiet...perfect precursor for Bozeman's tight quarters.

Get Acquainted Party... Red 2, Row 2 hosted by Kate, (3rd picture with Tuney.) Part of the excitement and enrichment of Internationals is to park among new friends and have new encounters. Don Williams of Sierra Nevada atop WBCCI CB headquarters, last pictured.

Can Anyone Stay Longer?

Last but not least Kate and I remain in our section until the end of the rally. We fashion a scheme to head out to Jackson Hole together.

Our National Park passes expedict entry to Grand Tetons and have paid for themselves already. A local points out the Sleeping Indian formation to Kate.

***funny story...at the rally, one morning Kate found a nest and an giant egg on her site, the next morning the egg was gone and a flamingo sat in the nest...too funny!!! We never did find out who was behind that.

After 5 days outside the park we move into the Tetons and have to rely on our self contained systems. Kate spies a fox and a grissley has just been removed 3 days ago from this campground and put down.

Thanks! This trip has become a sabatical of dreams and experiences I shall never forget. I am amazed at the magnitude and beauty of all this open land. While I can't put it into words I am just exuberant and am awestruck by the living geography.

Here is a picture of the Continental Divide in Yellowstone.

Sylvan Pass

Leaving Yellowstone by the East Entrance takes you past Fishing Bridge and then through the Sylvan Pass. Sylvan Pass is located in the Absaroka Range and has an elevation of 8530 feet. It was named after nearby Sylvan Lake (god of the woods, from silva, forest), and was formed by frost action breaking the rocks. The park road through the pass is closed in winter and avalanches and mud slides are a common seasonal danger.

Buffalo Bill State Park

Just West of Cody Wyoming is Buffalo Bill State Park. The history of Buffalo Bill Reservoir and "Cody Country" is rooted in the rich lore of the old West. Buffalo Bill State Park was named for Colonel William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody, famous as a wild west showman, promoter and developer. He first came to the region in the 1870s as a guide for a survey expedition and spent the next 20 years guiding and sponsoring hunting parties in the area.

If I had not run my batteries down dry camping the past several days I would have loved to stay right here. Orie and I would have had the campground to ourselves.

Time to recharge and clean up. The drive ahead is long so I laid low at the KOA in Greybull Wyoming. I was pleasantly surprised with gourmet food and a stellar pet playground. Took a dip in the pool, dined on strip steak with mushroom sauce one night and then Weiner Schnitzel the next. It was fabulous. And wi-fi of course...life is good. Those patio leaves wave and bob in the breeze and a mister offered cooling. Dogs are welcome on the patio. The management could not have been nicer or more accommodating.

Out to cover some miles and heading towards Wall Drug, (stay tuned...) Are you as excited as I am? Gotta love Wall Drug!! Yup, a big kid at heart, and hoping to hold onto that as long as I can. I passed Crazy Woman Canyon and would have loved to have taken a self portrait at the sign.

Took the scenic drive through Big Horn Forest and then Powder River Pass and the gas engine is really starting to chaff. Grades are steep up and down but it is a beautiful drive. Also took a short side trip to Deadwood.
