The Cody Nite Rodeo

Day four of our journey ended in Cody, Wy. We were taken aback when we discovered that Cody was a very difficult town to find an available hotel or motel with a vacancy. We eventually found what passed for a motel, but I think they borrowed beds from the jail display at the Old Trail Town. When we asked why rooms were so scarce we were told that Cody, the “Rodeo Capital of the World,” had the Cody Nite Rodeo which was held every night June 1st through August 31st. That was all my cowboy cousin needed to hear. Since the rodeo was scheduled to begin in less than an hour, we settled on a quick dinner and blasted over to Stampede Park to watch the show.

Photos from the Beartooth Mountains and Chief Joseph Scenic Highway

After leaving Red Lodge we headed on towards the Beartooth Mountains. Since I had not been driving and had never visited this part of the country, I believed my cousin when he told me we were in the Tetons. It wasn’t until that night, when I brought out a map that I realized where we really were. Shortly after crossing the border into Wyoming we found ourselves on the Chief Joseph Scenic Highway. There was no question that as far as scenery was concerned, our trip had just been bumped up a couple levels.

Little Big Horn and Red Lodge Ales

Day four of our journey began in Miles City and a beautiful morning. The storm clouds looked fantastic and made for great photos. As we headed across on I-94 I spotted a sign for the Little Big Horn battleground, so we made our first detour of the day. The signs were not very accurate, but due to another u-turn we soon came upon it. One thing my cousin and I both noticed was how solemn people seemed to be there.

As we came into Billings my cousin asked if I had even been inside a Cabela’s Sporting Goods store. As I had not, he insisted that we go in one and urged me to bring my camera. Very cools displays and great taxidermy. After leaving there we headed to Red Lodge which is at the foot of the Beartooth mountains. We stopped at Sam’s Taproom for a sampler plate of their brews and I was not disappointed. Very nice beers indeed.
