We took our time packing up and then moseyed on our way.
I had been meaning to stop at this statue every day and take a picture and did not. So this was taken while moving. The elk statue is at the Antler Inn and take a good look at his nose. Someone put a beer can on it – how funny – .
We drove northwest out of Thermopolis, past many horses:
And rolling hills:
We started to notice the haziness – not quite sure if it was a storm or ????:
We first saw white dots in the distance – turned out to be a herd of white cows:
Then we saw another herd:
And a few more herds of white cows after that – how strange.
The road continued:
Into oil country:
And into Cody:
Notice the haze – we found out that it is smoke from all the fires burning in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. For an east coast girl, that is like having a fire in western Ohio and see the smoke from that fire in central PA. Very different for me.
Once we settled in at Absaroka Bay RV Park in Cody, where we will be for a week, we went for a ride around the town. We made a stop at the Shoshone National Forest Headquarters for maps and information for our next move. From there we stopped at the visitor center for information and tickets.
Our last stop was the local Elks lodge where we had a wonderful time.
Tomorrow we start playing tourist so stay tuned. There is so much to do here, oh my!
