James' visit - Day 2

We slept in and went to Wendy's for lunch. Then, we went to the square. I love this square. The antler arches make it very unique.

Then, we headed towards Yellowstone. Along the road, there were some more funny road signs. I didn't get a shot of the first one, but I believe it said something to the effect of :
"Wildlife Ahead"

We entered Yellowstone through the South Entrance and stopped at West Thumb Geyser Basin with Yellowstone Lake as a backdrop:

Then, we headed towards Cody, Wy. A little ways past the lake, after we had turned on the East Entrance Rd, we spotted a grizzly bear next to the road. James had never seen a grizzly before!

He's eating dandelions:
Once we exited the park, it took about an hour and a half or so to get to Cody. We stopped at
for a late lunch/early dinner. We were starved and it tasted great!
Then, we went to check into our cabin at Buffalo Bill Village on Main St. in Cody. It was very plain but cozy cabin:

Then, we headed to the Cody Rodeo which takes place every single night during the summer.

This little fella below is only 5 years old, and he rode a steer - didn't quite make it the 6 seconds (for his age bracket) but it was fun to watch him try.

Bronc riding:

I HATE calf roping. Run as fast as you can, calf!!!
