Rapid City to Cody

 

Day one of my trip is the drive from Rapid City west.  I had no place planned for my stop, and I ended up snagging a motel room in Cody, Wyoming at the end of the day.  Here documents the journey:

 

One of my last views of South Dakota.

 

This is taken in a Wyoming rest area.

 

My first view of the Big Horn Mountains.

 

Another view of the Big Horn Mountains, from another Wyoming rest area.  This is not long before I have to cross over/through the mountains.

 

I take this when I'm not even halfway up the mountains.

 

Snow at the top .... and it IS snowing.

 

A lake at the top.  I'm entering the Big Horn National Forest

 

A crack in the earth.

 

A horizon view.

 

Me in the Big Horn Mountains.

 

A canyon.

 

On the other side, between the Big Horns and the Rockies, the towns are very small.

 

A view from the other side of the Big Horn Mountains.

 

I get myself a motel room in Cody, Wyoming.  Here's the aftermath of me doing laundry.  You can also see my new additional Memory Stick I bought for my camera, thinking I may want it in Yellowstone.
