We enjoyed walking in downtown Cody and we visited the Buffalo Bill Center of the West.

I am not at all interested in cowboys nor Indians and I probably set a record for how fast I toured the entire museum.

Mr. SP enjoyed the firearms exhibit but was curious about how unorganized it was.

Yellowstone Park

The next day we drove through Yellowstone Park. Our first stop was by a lake where Sherman enjoyed walking and getting a drink.

Mammoth Hot Springs

After teaching life science for 25 years, and seeing pictures of hot springs in Yellowstone, I was super excited to get to this part of the park.

Hot springs could be seen on either side of the road.

Walking close to the hot springs was so interesting.

Grand Tetons

A hike in the Grand Tetons was especially fun because it snowed as we walked.

Our next stop is Bozeman, Montana. Be on the lookout for my next post!


  1. Your pics are fabulous! Truly the west had a beauty so different from our east coast green mountains. Enjoy Bozeman, where my oldest son lives.

  2. Absolutely beautiful, Paula! I can’t wait for your next post. Thank you so much for sharing this trip.
    How wonderful to have some snow to enjoy!

  3. Oh this area is on my list to visit! A former classmate did her masters at University of Wyoming Teton Science Schools. Whenever she talked about the park, her eyes would light up!

  4. Paula
    Wonderful pictures. So nice to see so many natural vistas. What a wonderful country we live in.
    I love Sherman!!

  5. Paula it looks like you are having a wonderful time. I love Wyoming, my husband lived there for many years and we visit there ofter. Montana is another amazing place to visit, you will love it. Again, my husband lived in Helena for many years when he was a pilot and two years ago we spent 10 days driving all over Montana, I had never been and fell in love with the beauty of it all. Not sure where you are headed after Boseman but should you find your self near Wheat Montana, and you will see a lot of signs it is a fun place to stop, also my favorite town in Montana was White Fish, and one more things…between White Fish and Calispel is a delicious hamburger place called the Mud Man, it is a must stop!!! Have a wonderful trip and thank you for sharing all of your beautiful pictures.
