The first park we went through was Buffalo Bill State Park outside Cody. It was a really interesting place with all the sharp and defined cliffs and rock formations. The Shoshone river flows through the park and ends at the Buffalo Bill Dam. I couldn't get a picture of it but there are some tales out there that Snopes.com say are all hoax. Here are a few pictures.
Really a wild west type of territory isn't it. I loved all the rock formations and the dry arid country like in the southwest...but there is water everywhere. I guess the land just can't hold it.
Next stop was the Shoshone Forest but the pictures are so like the ones from Yellowstone I am just going to group them together. There have been several attacks on the pines in this area we visited either by fire or on the Lodge Pole Pines beetle that has killed off a lot of the forest. Okay so here goes. Lots of pictures of Yellowstone!
