When it finally came time to leave Yellowstone, the trip out of the park was especially beautiful. There was a combination of fog and steam making the park look even more otherworldly than normal!
We exited the park through the east entrance that led into the Shoshone National Forest. This happens to be the first national forest in the United States, created by President Benjamin Harrison in 1891.
We were on our way to Cody to spend the night, and passed by ranch country and the Buffalo Bill Reservoir.
I didn't get any pictures of Cody I'm afraid, but we had a great time there. Cody was founded by Colonel William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody. Buffalo Bill, was an American scout, bison hunter, and showman. We spent most of the day at the Buffalo Bill Cody Museum, where we learned about the history of the man himself, the Native Americans of the region, the natural history, western art and a huge firearms collection. I think my hubby could have spent all week there, and we all thoroughly enjoyed it.
