Road Trippin

We are off to Cody to visit the Buffalo Bill Museum and then take the Chief Joseph Highway thru the Beartooth Moutains to Red Lodge and then back to Billings.
Buffalo Bill Museum in Cody, Wyoming  We really enjoyed the Western Art Museum.  My favorite was this Remington Bronze of the cowboy on the horse and this James Bama original.  We also visited the Natural History Museum but after 2 hours we had to leave the Plains Indian Museum for next time.  Fantastic place to visit.

The museum has over 7,000 guns on display and we found the most important ones, the Smith and Wesson Schofield First and Second Models.  I had gun over load but it was pretty cool and the museum was huge, modern and very nice!

In addition to the 7,000 they have 1,500 + guns from the Smithsonian.  They displayed them in stand up sliding drawers.  We were impressed.

Who ever was in charge of clouds today did an outstanding job.  Just outside of Cody is the Chief Joseph's Hwy- Sunlite Basin which takes you up many 1000 feet on very curvy roads.
It is beautiful and always very windy at the top.  ie the do:)  Dane was in heaven taking the Boxster thru all it's paces while I was squeeling for him to slow down. 
After dropping down a couple thousand feet we climbed the Beartooth mountains a couple thousand feet where you are above the tree line and they have SNOW, and 42 degrees.  We had the hat down on the Porsche with the heat on 85 and the heated seats turned on.  We are so lucky to live here in Montana and get to experience all this beauty that has been created for us.  He sure out did himself with all of this.
