Photos from Grand Teton National Park

Shortly after exiting the south gate of Yellowstone we entered Grand Teton National Park. I must admit, I fully expected Yellowstone National Park to be the highlight of this trip. In fact, I changed our route a couple of times to make sure that we got as much of Yellowstone as possible. After visiting the Tetons, I decided that they were the most beautiful part of the journey. My only regret was that we were running out of sunlight, so did not really get to explore much. I will change that as soon as possible.

We ended the day in Jackson Hole, WY and had a great time at the Snake River Brewing Company. My cousin appreciated that they had a gluten free pasta and I appreciated the great beer. All the employees we spoke with were fun and our Travelocity gnome got lots of attention and he loves attention.

Yellowstone National Park

Shortly after leaving Cody and the Buffalo Bill Dam we entered Yellowstone National Park’s East Entrance. I had not visited Yellowstone since I was a youngster, maybe 45 years ago. Since Yellowstone is extremely large and we only had one day to see as much as we could, we took the long way around the park. From the east entrance we drove alongside Yellowstone Lake to the Fishing Bridge junction. After a nice lunch we took Grand Loop Road to Canyon Village, across to Madison then dropped down to Old Faithful and eventually out the south entrance leading to the Tetons.

Old Faithful erupts every 40 minutes to two hours. We decided we would wait up to an hour before moving on. Luckily, Old Faithful went off about 10 minutes after we arrived. Timing is everything.

Cody and the Buffalo Bill Dam

We ended day four and began day five in Cody, WY. On the way to the Cody Rodeo the night before, we noticed what looked like an old frontier town in the fields between Cody and Stampede Park. We decided to check it out the next morning. It turned out being the Old Trail Town which was the original townsite of Cody, which was named after William F. (“Buffalo Bill”) Cody. If you are into Old West artifacts, you will definitely appreciate a stop by Old Trail Town.

After leaving the city limits and heading into the mountains we came across Buffalo Bill Dam. This dam was built in 1910 with no steel reinforcement and was the highest dam of the era. Another cool place to visit if you are in the area, and it is free.
